Health, Wellness and Prevention

In the Boulder Valley School District, we believe in caring for the whole child. We know that before students can focus and succeed in the classroom, they must be supported physically, mentally and through a healthy environment.


Whole Child Health and Wellness

Physical Health

On a daily basis it is important for students to take care of themselves by eating healthy, being active and getting enough sleep.  Learning healthy habits now provides both long-term academic and health benefits.

Mental Health

Important mental health habits—including coping, resilience, and good judgment—help adolescents to achieve overall well being and set the stage for positive mental health in adulthood.

Environmental Health

A child's respiratory, immune, nervous, reproductive, and skeletal systems continue to develop throughout childhood. Exposures to environmental contaminants that occur early in life can cause adverse health impacts in children that can have implications well into adulthood, which is why BVSD strives to provide the healthiest environments possible for students.

Health Promotion and Prevention

Youth need knowledge and skills to make good health decisions.  BVSD is committed to ensuring all youth reach adulthood with a healthy start by providing health promotion and prevention activities to all levels of students throughout their school career.
