San Ysidro School District recently committed to advancing the Live Well San Diego vision of a healthy, safe and thriving region by becoming a recognized Live Well San Diego partner on August 5, 2015. The proclamation was presented to the district by County of San Diego Supervisor Greg Cox with all school board members present. San Ysidro School District is composed of seven schools and has more than 5,200 students in pre-school through eighth grade.
School district partners have the potential to reach children and families throughout San Diego County. Working together, partner school districts are sharing best practices and advancing policies and programs that support healthy, safe and thriving students, teachers and families through updated wellness programs, farm-to-cafeteria programs, school gardens, safe routes to schools, disaster preparedness and environmentally conscious buildings.
