Tuesday, Apr 12 from 7pm ET to 8:30pm ET
Mindfulness and Media Webinar to learn the steps you can take to help teens navigate technology in a savvy and healthy way.

If there is any possibility that your student has had a head injury/concussion, please make sure that your student is evaluated as soon as possible by a physician experienced in evaluating and treating concussion. Here is the concussion packet families need if their student has a concussion, and here are some very informative podcasts from Concussion Legacy Foundation (CLF).

COVID-19 Information:

  • New Masking Mandate  As of Saturday, Mar 12, the state masking mandate will transition from “required” to “strongly recommended”. While masks will no longer be required (with some exceptions),  “masks remain one of the most effective and simplest safety mitigation layers to prevent transmission of COVID-19 infections” (CDPH). Masks will still be available to those who need or want one.  We hope that all Acalanes community members will be respectful and non-judgmental of each person’s decision. Students who return after Day 5 of Covid infection must mask through Day 10.
  • Please remain alert to COVID symptoms, continue to report COVID+ cases to us (especially Attendance) and keep your students home when they are ill. Most students are now eligible to get Vaccine boosters and a high vaccination rate helps keep students in school learning. Please submit your students’ COVID vaccine records.
  • COVID Isolation, Quarantines and Test Kits – The current guidelines for return to school after COVID illness require a negative COVID test (if returning before 10 days). If your student is testing in the School Nurse Office, please make sure they register with Primary Health. School sites do NOT have more test kits to distribute. Please see Principal Shawn’s COVID FAQs for more details. We continue to update policy based on the County Health Department guidance.
  • Make sure you always have your proof of vaccination! Try this site- iPhone users- you can now put your vaccination record in your Apple Health app (and Apple Wallet).

Please be in touch with me to discuss any medical, health, or wellness concerns.

Stay healthy and be well,
