Wellness Council

Hermosa Beach City School District is committed to wellness and well-being for our students, staff, and community. For more information, please contact our principals or Superintendent. 
Wellness Council
The Wellness Council has met for two years in order to better support the health of students. This committee of administrators, counselors, and parents, has created several initiatives, including the additional counselor and Parent-Counselor Chats.
