Health Services


Good health is an essential component of optimal learning conditions. It is, therefore, the mission of Health Services to support the health status of our students and to identify and assist in the removal or modification of health-related barriers to learning. In this way, Health Services contributes directly to AUSD’s vision of preparing our students to be responsible citizens by providing a safe and secure learning environment.

We ask families to help us ensure all student records are up to date for their children. Below are important resources and protocols to follow.

It is important to protect students from infectious diseases that are transmitted within the school setting.

Your child may be excluded from school in accordance with California Education Code section 48210-48214 and section 49451. “Whenever there is a reason to believe that the child is suffering a recognized contagious or infectious disease, he/she shall be sent home and shall not be permitted to return until the school authorities are satisfied that any contagious disease does not exist.”
