Health Services

The Family Resource Center supports students by providing a variety of services, including helping families in need obtain things like backpacks, prom dresses, food resources and bus passes. We can also assist with counseling referrals. Watch for more information about the services we provide as we add to this web page.

Immunization forms and other needed forms relating to student health will also be available on this page in the near future.

Severe Allergic Reactions

Anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening hypersensitivity to a substance. The reaction can occur within seconds or minutes of encountering an allergic trigger, including, but not limited to, an insect sting, food allergy, medication and, in rare cases, by unknown causes. California Education Code (ED) Section 49414 requires school districts to provide emergency epinephrine auto-injectors in the event that a reaction occurs. If you do not wish your child to receive epinephrine in the event of anaphylaxis you must submit your request in writing to your child's school.
