There are vaccination requirements in order to attend 7th Grade. There is a requirement for all 7th grade students to have a booster shot against Pertussis, also known as whooping cough. There is also a requirement that your child has at least TWO MMR vaccines that protect your child from Measles. For the Pertussis requirement, ANY vaccine that contains Pertussis such as TDAP, Adacel or Boostrix given after age 7 meets this requirement. For the MMR requirement, having two vaccines that contain Measles given after one year of age will meet this requirement. If your child has not had a booster shot, please contact your pediatrician or the local health department at 530-621-6100 to schedule an appointment for this vaccine. Proof of vaccine is required PRIOR the first day of school for your child to attend 7th grade. Students without proof of vaccination will not be able to attend classes as there is NO grace period allowed by the State of CA. Please note that newer immunization law has eliminated obtaining a waiver for these vaccines. Should your child have a medical condition that prevents vaccination, you must obtain a letter from your pediatrician to exclude them for these requirements.

Every Day Counts
Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he or she gets more than two days behind his peers, because he or she must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that the only valid reasons for absences from school are:
School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.
We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
