Pupil Services and Attendance Counselor

PSA Counselor: Ms. K. Vargas

We cannot teach an empty seat.  Attendance is important.  It is also the law.  According to California Ed Code 48200, all students between the ages of 6 and 18 must attend school everyday.  If you have any questions about your child's attendance, don't hesitate to contact me.  I am here to offer my support and hope that by working collaboratively, we can help guide your children towards a successful future.

Bam Body & Mind (for students):
Learn about your body, your personal safety, food, nutrition and physical activity.

Middle School Students, How Stressed are You?:
Stress is part of our every day life and can sometimes be good. However, too much stress can be harmful to us physically, emotionally and mentally. Find out how stressed you are.
