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 http://www.shotsforschool.org/ 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.
