Student & Family Wellness

Wellness matters. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. From meeting everyone’s basic needs for safety and sustenance to enriching our experiences, wellness matters. Therefore, it is important to HBUHSD that everyone achieves optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness, be best prepared for learning and school performance, and experience positive interactions.
