Hesperia Unified School District recognizes the link between student health and learning and desires to promote a healthy environment for district students. We’ve created a Wellness Committee whose purpose is to bring together representatives who can help address issues facing the health and well-being of our children. Parents, students, community members, and organizations are invited to participate alongside teachers, administrators, school health professionals, and school board members. Four meetings are held per school year.
As members of the Hesperia community, your input is important. If you are interested in participating in the Wellness Committee or learning more about it, please contact [email protected] or call (760) 948 - 1051.
