Mental Health Check-in Request form (

Distance Learning can be a trying time for students.  Escalon Unified wants to ensure we stay connected with those who need us most.  If a student you know may benefit from a mental health check-in or conflict mediation support, please complete this form and our Student Services team can reach out.  This form should only be used for mental health referrals/ concerns.  Anyone can complete the form to suggest a mental health provider check-in with a student.
