Communication: Students should have at least two contact phone numbers, in case of emergencies or student illness. A LOCAL PHONE NUMBER IS REQUIRED in case a parent cannot be reached. Students should communicate illness and injury to a school staff rather than using a cell phone to call parents during school hours.

Immunizations: All 7th and 8th grade students must be immunized. Assembly Bill 354, which takes effect in July, mandates that all students in grades 7 through 12 must be vaccinated for whooping cough, or pertussis, in order to attend any school in California in the 2011-2012 school year. State officials have warned that there will be no grace period and the law will be strictly enforced, with a “No Shot, No School” campaign in place to alert parents of the new requirement.
Medications: Students are prohibited from carrying any medications-even Tylenol and over the counter medications. District policy and California law requires, if a student must take ANY medicine during the school day, proper forms are to be completed by parents and the doctor. Only prescriptions written by U.S. doctors may be dispensed at school. Parents must provide the medicine in the prescribed container with instructions for dispensing.
