School Immunization Law-PS, Kindergarten and 7th grade students

Senate Bill 277 and School Immunization Law

With the passing of SB277, no new personal beliefs exemption (PBE) forms may be filed effective January 1, 2016 for students attending a public or private school in California.  Personal beliefs exemptions that have already been filed for students in grades K (including transitional kindergarten) through 6th grade remain valid until the student reaches 7th grade.

Students entering Preschool and Kindergarten - ACTION NEEDED
Updated Immunization and Physician's Report

Students entering Preschool and Kindergarten - Please remember to bring in your immunization documentation from your physician's office and submit it to the school secretary, as soon as possible.  Please do not forget to have your doctor complete the "Physician's Report" (a physical) clearing your child to attend any school in the State of California and making sure all immunizations are up to date, per State of California and the California Department of Public Health guidelines.

Students entering the 7th Grade - ACTION NEEDED
7th Grade Requirement:  Tdap and MMR

California law requires that all students entering 7th grade have completed a Tdap booster shot and two measles (or MMR) shots.  In order for your child to start 7th grade, you will need to bring documentation to the school secretary no later than August 19, 2016.  

NOTE:  These vaccines needed for school entry. Please contact your child's doctor right away about these vaccines. Students entering school who do not meet the immunization requirements will not be able to attend school until it is complete.

Please feel free to speak with the school secretary if you have any questions at (510) 278-2598.

Thank you for helping us keep your child, our school, and our community safe and healthy.

Just a reminder      IMPORTANT NOTES & REMINDERS     

CLS IS A PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE SCHOOL CAMPUS We have several students who are extremely sensitive to any and all peanut/tree nut products and this is very dangerous to their health and well-being.  Some students could even have such a severe reaction to nuts that it becomes life threatening.  Please do not send your child to school with any snacks or lunches that have peanuts or are from a tree nut.  These types of snacks and lunches might be reserved for something special, like a special treat at home. 

SCRIP - The easiest fundraiser we have!
