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 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.

Thank you,

Tiffany Kendall Obayashi
Acting Principal
