Home-packed lunch students invited to enjoy Harvest Bars

DOUGLAS COUNTY – DCSD elementary and middle school students who prefer home-packed lunches are invited to enjoy a side salad trip through our celebrated Harvest Bars featuring fresh salad, fruits, veggies and White Farms Natural (no sugar added) Applesauce.

"The Harvest Bar side salad offering is ideal for parents who want to ensure their children are truly eating produce. Students will love joining their school friends at the salad bars to select their own fresh, crisp and nutrient packed produce. My kids are looking forward to this option for days they choose a packed lunch," said DCSD Dietitian Kasja Larson.

"This option is a no-brainer for busy parents. Harvest Bar Ala Carte for 75¢ ... nothing could be easier, especially if you're a parent looking to make produce consumption a priority for your child/ren," said Larson.

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
