Attention Parents of all incoming 7th Grade Students: For the 2014/2015 school year, California Law (AB 354) requires an additional immunization called Tdap in order for your student to advance into or enter 7th grade. The adolescent whooping cough/pertussis booster shot, (Tdap) must be given on or after age 7 to meet this requirement. Valid proof must show: 1) type of shot given, 2) date, 3) provider’s signature/stamp. If parents have not provided proof to their school by the first day of school, August 27, 2014, your student will NOT be allowed to attend.
