Health Services

Healthy children learn better.  The school nurse works to enhance the health and well-being of students and families to help achieve this goal.  As part of this process, the School Nurse is involved in providing first aid, as well as helping students and their families in managing chronic health conditions while in the school setting.  The School Nurse provides health training to teachers and staff to assist them as they support the child with a health concern in the classroom.  The School Nurse provides vision, hearing. and dental screenings throughout the year, and assists with resources and information. Please contact our school nurse, Michele Penman, if your child needs medication during school hours or has a medical condition that may impact their time in the classroom.

Dental Health

Every child deserves a healthy start in life.  Dental health is an important part of overall health.  Dental problems can begin early in life, as soon as the first tooth comes in.  It is much easier to prevent dental disease than to treat it!  1 in 4 elementary school age children have tooth decay!  Dental Services are currently provided as one of the many benefits under the Medi-Cal program.  To find out more information, check out the California Department of Public Health - Denti-Cal web site, or check out the brochures below.

Car Safety Seat Law
Effective January 1 2012, a new booster seat law was put into place in California requiring that all children under the age of 8 must be properly buckled into a car seat or booster in the back seat.  For each child under the age of 16 who are not properly secured, parents/drivers can be fined more than $475 and get a point on their driving records.  Protect yourself and your children and find out more about this law by checking out the California Department of Public Health - Vehicle Occupant Safety Program web site for additional information.
