Our Mission

St. Vrain Valley School District values the health and well being of their employees. In an effort to improve the health of all SVVSD employees, increase productivity, decrease absenteeism, and have a healthier and happier workforce, the district established a Worksite Wellness Program in 2010.

Mission: To establish a culture of health and wellness that encourages lifelong healthy behaviors and attitudes, fosters a healthy learning environment, promotes student achievement and benefits our employees and community through improved quality of life.

Primary Goals:

  • Encourage a Supportive Social and Physical Environment that Promotes a Culture of Healthy Lifestyles for All District Employees.
  • Provide a variety of wellness initiatives to educate employees about the importance of modifiable risk factors and to encourage healthy behavior change.
  • Raise Awareness and Engagement of wellness initiatives for optimal health.
  • Engage Leadership in Supporting, Role Modeling, and Communicating Wellness in the Workplace

What Wellness has to Offer

SVVSD Wellness takes an eight pillar approach to wellness, the eight pillars are physical, social, environmental, spiritual, occupational, intellectual, financial, and emotional. During the school year we offer classes that correlate to either one or multiple of the pillars, touching on everything at least once. Information for upcoming events is passed onto your buildings Wellness Advocate to share or found in the HR newsletter.
