Immunization Requirements 

To prevent some of the most serious infections, the California School Immunization Law requires that children receive a series of immunizations before entry to schools, child care centers, or family child care homes. In addition, the California School Immunization Law requires schools, child care centers, and family child care homes to enforce immunization requirements, to maintain immunization records of all children enrolled, and to submit reports to the health department.

Please make sure your children receive necessary immunizations.  Parents must obtain a record of immunizations from their child's doctor and submit it to one of the school offices before the student will be allowed to attend classes.

For more information about which immunizations are required, you can download the Guide to the Requirements of the California School Immunization Law for parents here:
