Hello Wonderful ECP Families!
We are looking forward to another exciting school year. While it will definitely be a new experience, we are working to ensure students receive a quality and meaningful online education until a re-entry plan is possible.
Even though the online component to our program is new, many state requirements have not changed. As a California school, we are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at TK/Kindergarten and all students advancing to 7th grade before entry. Parents must show their child’s Immunization Record as proof of immunization. Please be prepared, before or on the first day of school, to provide proof of immunization (i.e., Certificate of Immunization [CA Immunization Report]). You can find a detailed list attached to this message.
Additionally, the purpose of this communication is to inform you of immunization requirements that will impact rising 7th grade students. Students entering 7th grade are now required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine for individuals who have not already received those vaccines.
Please contact your health care provider or local health department if your child needs these vaccines. For additional information about the vaccines and diseases they protect against, visit the Center of Disease Control and Prevention’s website at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/who/teens/index.html.
We understand the challenges associated with leaving home, but schools are required by law to prohibit any student from attending school until proof of immunization of required vaccinations have been supplied to the school office. As much as possible, please be proactive and get your child’s vaccines completed.
Thank you for your attention to the matter and we look forward to “seeing” you soon.
Head of School
