Vaccine Exemption Law SB277

 
 
Notice to Parents and Guardians about Vaccine Exemptions
Under a new law known as SB 277, (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 child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade.

Report of Health Exam

All students are required to show proof of immunizations and must adhere to the most current requirements regardless of age. Additionally, all First Graders are required to have a completed Report of Health Examination for School Entry (PM171A) signed by their physician. This health examination must have taken place within 18 months of your student’s admission into First Grade. A copy of this form is included in your registration packet. Extra copies are available in the Health Office.
