Health Services

Health Services is dedicated to the philosophy that promoting health in children enhances their ability to learn. The staff of Health Services is committed to the maintenance of optimal health and sense of well being for all Manteca Unified School District students, their families, and our staff in cooperation with the communities of Manteca, Lathrop, French Camp, and Weston Ranch. 


The McKinney-Vento Act defines transitional (homeless) students as those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and may reside:

  • In a shelter (family, domestic violence, youth shelter, or transitional housing)
  • In a motel, hotel, or weekly rate housing (single room occupancy hotel)
  • Temporarily (not permanent) in a house or apartment with more than one family because of loss of housing or economic hardship
  • In an abandoned building, car, campground, or on the street
  • With friends or family because you are a runaway or an unaccompanied youth

What are your Child's Educational Rights?

  • Under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act, your child:
  • Has the right to enroll in school without normally required documents such as birth certificates, proof of residency, transcripts, and immunization records
  • Has the right to continue to attend the school in which they were last enrolled or attend the school nearest their current residence
  • May receive transportation to school
