Dear Parent/Guardian:

Whooping cough, also know as pertussis, continues, to threaten students in California.  To help stop its spread, all incoming 7the graders are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (‘Tdap”) shot, or file an exemption, in order to attend classes this year.  Students will not be allowed to attend 7th grade classes for the 2012-2013 school year without a shot record.

We need a booster shot record from your child.   If your child hasn’t yet, please schedule an appointment, immediately with your regular doctor.  Vaccine may also be available at  If your child has already received the booster shot, please give us a copy of the shot record by May 24, 2012.

Fell free to call us with any questions or concerns.  Our phone number (415)552-6757.

Thank you,

Tiffany Kendall Obayashi
Acting Principal
