Health Info & Forms


Tdap and 7th Grade

Whooping cough (pertussis) was widespread in California during 2010. The California Department of Public Health recommends that all Californians 10 years and older receive a booster shot against pertussis (also known as "Tdap").  Moreover, Assembly bill 354, now chaptered into California law, requires students to be immunized against pertussis.

From July 2, 2012 and beyond, all students entering 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school.

The following health information is available here for review. The procedures listed below are to be followed when your child is ill.

  • Check your child for signs of illness in the morning before sending him to school.
  • Be alert for early signs of illness, such as fever, cough, decreased appetite, watering eyes, change in behavior, loose stools, and nasal discharge. Please keep your child at home if these symptoms occur.
  • If your child has had a fever above 100 degrees, vomitting, or diarrhea within the past 24 hours, he should not be sent to school until these symptoms have been gone for 24 hours.
  • Please contact your physician if your child has been seriously ill. Early treatment may prevent more serious illness.
  • If you take your child to a physician, please get a release from the doctor before you send your child back to school.
  • If your child has a communicable or infectious disease, please notify the teacher or school nurse immediately so that appropriate measures may be taken to protect other children in the class.
  • If your child should become ill at school, the nurse will notify you or your emergency contact. Please make sure that the school has up-to-date telephone numbers.
  • If your child has an illness that is potentially dangerous to himself or others, you will be called to come to school and get him. Sick children may not remain at school.
  • If a child continues to come to school with symptoms of illness or if needed medical attention is neglected, the child may be excluded from school at the discretion of the school administration according to Education Code 48221.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school nurse if you have any questions regarding these recommendations
