• Immunizations

    To protect the health of all students and staff and to curtail the spread of infectious diseases, students must be immunized against certain communicable diseases. Students may not be admitted into any elementary, preschool, or childcare and development program for the first time unless they have met the immunization requirements. The parent’s guide to “Required Immunizations for School Entry” from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) website can be accessed by clicking on the link.

    Students are not required to have immunizations if they attend a home-based private school or an independent study program and do not receive classroom-based instruction. However, parents must continue to provide immunizations records for these students to their schools. The immunization requirements do not prohibit students from accessing special education and related services required by their individualized education programs.

    Medical exemptions may only be submitted using the standardized form developed by CDPH. To request such an exemption, parents are to first register for a California Immunization Registry – Medical Exemption (CAIR-ME) account at https://cair.cdph.ca.gov/exemptions/home to obtain a medical exemption request number before going to their child’s doctor.

    If an enrolled student who was previously believed to be in compliance with immunization requirements is subsequently discovered to not be in compliance with requirements for unconditional or conditional admission, the student’s parent will receive notice that evidence of proper immunization or an appropriate exemption must be provided within 10 school days. A student not fully immunized may be temporarily excluded from a school or other institution when that child has been exposed to a specified disease and whose documentary proof of immunization status does not show proof of immunization against a communicable disease.

    SBSD will cooperate with state and local public health officials in measures necessary for the prevention and control of communicable diseases in school age children.
