Erin Lain, Director of Student Services, is responsible for providing leadership to the District in developing, implementing and maintaining Special Education and Student Service programs and services in compliance with Federal and State regulations.

Annual Notification of Parent Rights and Responsibilities
Each year notifications are provided for each family to inform parents of legal rights and responsibilities for students attending school. eng/span
Student Attendance and Truancy
Students are required to attend school unless they have a valid excuse for an absence. If students are absent without a valid excuse for 3 or more days, or if they have excessive absences, parents may be required to attend a School Attendance Review Board (S.A.R.B.)
School nurses play an important role in keeping our students healthy, ensuring students are up-to-date with immunizations, and provide vision, hearing, and other health screenings. Students who need to receive medication at school must have permission for medication form signed by the child's physician and parent on file at school.
The South Bay Union School District (SBUSD) provides Home Instruction to students whose doctor has determined the student too ill to attend school. If your child is ill and will not be able to attend school for more than 10 consecutive days please provide the Home Instruction Request Form to your child's doctor and have them fax to Student Services at (619) 628-1669.
Students who are hospitalized receive their educational instruction by staff from the school district in which the hospital is located.
For more information contact the Student Services at (619) 628-1660.
HEALTH OFFICIALS URGE COMMUNITY TO KEEP CURRENT ON VACCINATIONS
Public Health officials are recommending a pertussis booster shot for all individuals ages seven and older who are not fully immunized, including those over 64 years of age. This is due to an increase in the number of whooping cough (pertussis) cases in San Diego County. In addition, the booster is recommended for women of childbearing age, before, during or immediately after pregnancy; and people who have contact with pregnant women or infants.
What exactly is pertussis and what can we do about preventing its spread?
