Immunization Requirements Effective 2016

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade. There are no checkpoints after 7th grade if your child attended a middle school in California and is entering a high school within California. Please keep in mind that some colleges and college programs require certain immunizations to enroll.

For more information about SB 277, please see the Frequently Asked Questions available at:

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Healths website at, contact your local health department or county office of education, or read the announcement from the CDPH. Thank you for helping us to keep our children and community healthy.

Specialized health care services (parent request):
This form is used for two purposes. The first purpose is for students that are in our Special Education classes and who require assistance with activities of daily living. The second purpose is for students that are not enrolled in special education however, need assistance with anything on an ongoing basis that does not otherwise have its own form. Examples include: scoliosis braces or bathroom assistance during a broken appendage. A new form is completed each year.
Specialized health care services (physician order/request):
This form may accompany the above form if the service requires a physician’s order. If you are not sure whether or not you need a physician’s order, please contact the nurse at your child’s school.
Release of Information:
This form is needed when a member of the school will need to contact the physician for many different reasons. A couple of reasons include: correcting errors within physician’s orders in a timely manner or discussing certain procedures that are unclear in physician’s orders. This is very helpful for nurses when parents are having difficulty contacting their child’s provider.
Request for PE modification due to injury or illness:
This form is for students that have sustained an injury or have an illness and will need to be out of PE for a prolonged period of time. This form is recommended for a child that has broken his leg and will be in a cast for over 5 days or someone that is still in recovery from a surgery. This form is not be used for PE exemptions. PE exemptions are school board approved, case-by-case applications for students that have no ability to perform PE including an adaptive PE class. This process begins with your student’s counselor.
