Update as of October 1, 2021
On October 1, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new vaccination state mandate for school employees and students. The state mandate will go into effect only once the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fully approves vaccines for those 12 and older. Upon FDA approval, staff and students will have until the start of the following academic term, either January 1st or July 1st, to be fully vaccinated.
From what we know at this time, this change likely will not impact the 2021-2022 school year for students. Until more information is available, schools will continue to be required to meet guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Emergency Temporary Standards issued by Cal/OSHA, including the Public Health Order requiring school workers to be fully vaccinated or undergo weekly diagnostic screening testing as of October 15.
Medication Pick Up
Medication Pick Up
If your student has medication in the health office, please pick it up prior to the last day of school. All medication left in the health office will be destroyed at the end of the school year. Medication may not be sent home with students; an adult or guardian must come to the health office to pick them up.
All medication, including epi-pens and inhalers, must have a doctor's and parent's signature in order to be held in the Health Office. No student may have any medication at school without a doctor's order. Medication forms need to be updated annually. The health aide is at the school every day from 9:00 a.m.-12:45 p.m.
