Health Requirements
 

California School Immunization Law requires that children be up-to-date on their immunizations to attend school. A copy of your child's completed immunization card must be submitted prior to the start of school.

 

Notice to Parents and Guardians about Vaccine Exemptions

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending childcare or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade.

Please review the following links to make sure your child(ren) have the required immunizations.
 
In addition to immunizations, California Department of Health Services requires students entering 1st grade to submit a Report Of Health Examination Form (available below) completed by a licensed health care provider.  The law allows for the health examination to be completed up to 18 months prior to entry into first grade or within 90 days thereafter.  A copy of the form can be printed from the attachment below.
