Californians can now get health coverage through a new, easy-to-use marketplace called Covered California. Covered California will offer health insurance plans, which cannot be canceled or denied, at an affordable price. Californians can shop for the plans on-line or see if they are eligible for Medi-Cal, and Covered California will provide in‑person and phone assistance for those who need it.  Balboa Teen Health Center has Certified California Covered Outreach Workers that can assist in answering your questions. Please contact Amanda Aguilar or Victor Travis at 415-469-4512 for more information.

Neal Shusterman, best selling author of the Unwind and Everlost Series, will be speaking in the Little Theater 1st period on Monday 4/20 about his new book, Challenger Deep. If you'd like to attend, first ask your 1st period teacher if they are planning to attend. If not, you can get a permission slip from Ms. Molly and get it signed by your teacher.

CHALLENGER DEEP is a captivating and deeply personal novel about one teen’s experience with mental illness.

The bottom is only the beginning...

We have plenty of copies of Unwind and Everlost if you'd like to read either before the author visit!
