New Immunization Requirements January 2016

Pleasanton Unified School District
1/4/2016
Dear Parent or Guardian:
Re: New immunization requirements for 2016
Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs,
including religious 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. Please consult your
Health Care Provider if this applies to your student.
For more information about SB 277, please see the Frequently Asked Questions available at:
http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/sb277faq/.
For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California
Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact your local health
department or county office of education.
Thank you for helping us to keep our children and community healthy.
Sincerely,
Kevin Johnson
Senior Director of Student Services

Pick-Up/Drop-Off Reminder

The drop-off area consists of one lane at the entrance. The Red area on the north end of the school driveway is a NO Drop-off or Pick-up area. The WHITE area between the two school gates is the only drop-off and pick-up area. The south side of the school driveway is reserved for buses and vans, only! No parking along the north side of the driveway from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. daily. This blocks the efficient flow of traffic, and causes unnecessary unsafe movement.

After entering the driveway, vehicles continue around the loop in the lane to an available curbside loading area. Parents need to stay in the vehicle to reduce the time occupying the loading area. After unloading or loading of passengers, vehicles are able to pull out into the “no stopping” lane and exit the loop. During the hours posted, left turns are prohibited; and, exiting school parking spots are postponed for 15 minutes.

Please remember that although your child is safely inside the school or in the vehicle, many other students are still walking around and cautious driving is needed at all times. We will be monitoring these procedures to evaluate the effectiveness of reducing traffic congestion while ensuring optimum safety for our students. Thank you for your cooperation and please drive safe!
