Thanks to a donation from a philanthropic organization, Lompoc Unified School District (LUSD) continues to provide support for staff wellness.
LUSD is providing twice-weekly yoga classes for staff to provide them a healthy way to mitigate stress and maintain overall wellness. In addition, LUSD has converted an old workshop into a fitness center.
“The well-being of our staff is incredibly important, especially during these times,” said Superintendent Trevor McDonald. “When our staff are healthy and well, it not only is beneficial to them but improves the experience for our students as well.”
All LUSD staff have access to the re-purposed workshop where they can exercise using free weights, rowing machines and stationary bikes.
“The facility has been used over 10,000 times by our staff,”said Bree Valla, deputy superintendent. “They continue to provide us input on the equipment they would like available to them in the fitness center and we have been outfitting the area to meet those needs.
“LUSD will continue to look for ways to provide support to our staff and their mental and physical well-being.”
