Parents of Current 6th Grade Students, Next Years 7th Graders:
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 their 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 the 2015-2016 school year. 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.
Friday, Dec 5th letters were mailed to current 6th grade students who do not show record of having a Tdap immunization.

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. Click here for MEDICATION AT SCHOOL FORM..........

Every Day Counts
Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he gets more than two days behind his peers, because he must make up missed learning and catch up with new learning at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that there are valid reasons for absences from school.
A new attendance accounting system became law beginning with the 1998-99 school year. Excused absences no longer count toward school funding for ADA. This means that absences, excused or unexcused, reduce our school funds ($35-$40 a day per child) as well as you child’s successful learning time in school. 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.
The primary responsibility for regular and punctual attendance is that of the parents and students. School staff will work closely with students and parents to assist them in meeting this responsibility. Every effort should be made by parents to clear their child absences by calling the school office (530) 672-4400 or send an absence note when your child returns.
Students who arrive after the start of the school day or leave before the end of the school day are required to check in/out of the school office. Prompt attendance is an important factor in classroom success.
We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. By understanding that Every Day Counts. Together we can give your child the very best.
Please discuss this at home so attendance problems can be avoided. Please let us know if there is something we can do at school to support your efforts to improve your child’s attendance. If your child had perfect attendance or missed days that were unavoidable we appreciate your efforts. Thank-you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
