Annual 10th Grade Vision and Hearing Screening
A major focus of School Nursing Services is the early detection and correction of health problems, as well as the prevention of illness and disability. Good vision and hearing are essential for academic and athletic success, as well as for the development of self-esteem, communication and socialization.

AUHSD credentialed School Nurses conduct annual hearing and vision screening for all 10th grade students each academic school year. Acalanes 10th grade students will be screened during their 10th grade English class on either Tuesday, November 29, or Tuesday, December 6.

Parent volunteers are needed for 10th grade hearing and vision Screening will take place at Acalanes High School in the School Nurse Office on November 29 and December 6. Sign up here to volunteer.  

Class Fundraisers

​Intervention Specialists Available
Ms. Mary Threlkel and Ms. Alison Gans, our trained crisis counselors, are available to meet with students struggling with social, emotional or personal issues in order to get help and learn coping skills. Students can sign up to see them in the Counseling Office or by referral from their counselors. Ms. Threlkel and Ms. Gans will present strategies for students to cope with stress at an upcoming Friday Forum. We are fortunate that the Acalanes Parents Club (APC) fully funds this shared position at our site.
