Health

A notice went out to our 6th grade parents regarding requirement for Tdap shot for incoming 7th graders. When your 6th grade student receives their Tdap booster, please bring a copy of their immunization record showing the Tdap booster date to the office ASAP. State Law requires exclusion from school if immunization mandates are not met, meaning, your student will not be able to come to school on Day One of the new school year if no immunization records are on file.

New Law SB 277 Effective in 2016

Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015. SB 277 changes immunization requirements for children entering child care or school. 

Starting January 1, 2016:
  • Parents or guardians of students in any school or child-care facility, whether public or private, will no longer be allowed to submit a personal beliefs exemption to a currently-required vaccine.
  • Students will no longer be required to have immunizations for entry if they attend:
    • A home-based private school or
    • An independent study program with no classroom-based instruction.
      • However, parents or guardians must continue to provide immunization records for these students to their schools, and schools must continue to maintain and report records of immunizations that have been received for these students. 
  • The immunization requirements do not prohibit pupils from accessing special education and related services required by their individualized education programs.
  • Medical and personal beliefs exemptions will be allowed from any new immunization requirement initiated by CDPH for attendance at school or child care.
More information about school vaccine requirements and SB 277 is available from the California Dept. of Public Health:
