7th Grade Requirement

Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, continues to threaten students in California. To help stop its spread, all incoming 7th graders are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot, or file an exemption, in order to attend classes this year. Students will not be allowed to attend classes without a shot record.
  
Please submit an immunization record for your students who will be entering the 7th grade next year. The immunization needs to have been given on or after your child’s 7th birthday. If your child hasn’t received this immunization yet, please schedule an appointment immediately with your regular doctor.
