California Common Core to be fully implemented next year!

Common Core State Standards Information for Parents:

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

To explore information on the new Common Core State Standards, click here...

Health Office News

Current 6th GRADE Parents of Incoming 7th Grade Students for 2014-2015:
All students entering 7th grade need proof of a Tdap (Tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis vaccine) booster shot before they will be allowed to start school.  This requirement will be met by receiving one dose of Tdap vaccine on or after the 7th birthday.
Once your child receives the Tdap vaccine, please bring his/her immunization record to the school office so a copy can be made and your child can be cleared to start school.  If you are unsure if your child has received this vaccine, please contact your health care provider.
If you have any questions regarding the Tdap requirement, please contact the school nurse at your school.  

Additionally, does  your child need to take medication while at school?  If so, California Ed Code requires that any prescription or over the counter medication be ordered by a physician.  Forms are available in the health office or online for you to take to your physician over the summer so you're ready for fall.  If you have any further questions please feel free to contact the front office.
