Santiago Counseling Intervention Resources

Care Solace

  • Care Solace is an online resource with a live 24x7 concierge line meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health-related programs and counseling services.
  • To use Care Solace, individuals answer ten basic questions in order to receive an extensive list of referrals to applicable care providers. Care Solace takes into account all types of private insurance including Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare and those that have no insurance. The system also filters by age, gender, zip code, and special request.
  • Care Solace is now available for use by CNUSD students, staff, and families at no cost. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. Care Solace does not require a user’s name, address, phone number, or date of birth.

Santiago ID Policy!

Students received their ID card and school issued lanyard at registration. Students either got a student ID card OR an ASB ID card if they purchased ASB membership for the year. All students will be required to visibly wear their Santiago ID DAILY on their Santiago lanyard while on campus. If a student loses or damages their ID card they will be required to get a replacement ID from the Shark Shop. Replacement ID cards cost $5.00 and replacement ASB ID cards cost $10.00.

FRONT OFFICE DROP OFF

In order to ensure school safety, drop offs in the front office are limited to ACADEMIC related drop offs. This means that ONLY homework or projects may be left in the office with the receptionist. Items that are not allowed to be dropped off are:

  • Balloons
  • Flowers
  • Money
  • Gifts
  • Food

Thank you in advance for keeping our front office a place of business.


Santiago does NOT allow food delivery services like Uber Eats, Doordash, Grub Hub, etc. on campus during school hours.

NO VAPING ON CAMPUS

Vaping on our campus is a suspendable offense. Currently, e-cigarettes, known as vapes, are the most common tobacco/nicotine products used among teenagers. Teens are using these vaping devices to inhale tobacco, flavored oils, and THC. Our goal is to reduce access and discourage the use on our campus. You can help support us by talking with your child about vaping, keeping an eye out for these products, or monitoring your child’s phone.

PARKING DURING SCHOOL HOURS - PARK IN THE FOOTHILL DROPOFF

In order to have enough space for our staff in the upper parking lot, Santiago is asking parents to park on the Foothill drop off area when picking up your child, dropping something off, or if you have a scheduled meeting on campus.
