Each student must have received all immunizations required by the State of California at the time of school registration to qualify for school enrollment. The district is legally responsible for maintaining records to ensure that all students have met these requirements. The school nurse or health aide will communicate any immunization need to you upon your child’s enrollment.

School Entry Requirements

Students entering school must show proof of the following immunizations:

The district participates in the Immunization Registry of Northern California which provides secure on-line access to immunization records. If your pediatrician/physician is also a participant and you have signed an agreement to share this information, we can quickly access your child’s immunization records. If you have not signed a release of records at your pediatrician’s office, you will need to bring copies of the immunization records to school.

If you child lacks immunizations to enter school, you may make an appointment for immunizations at Butte County Public Health Department, 695 Oleander Avenue, Chico, California (530-879-3665) or visit your physician.

Immunization Exemptions – Medical & Personal

  1. Your child may be exempt because of a medical condition. If so, you must present a statement signed by your doctor stating the medical problem, which immunizations your child cannot receive, and if the medical problem is temporary or permanent.
  2. Beginning January 1, 2016, personal beliefs exemptions will no longer be an option for vaccines that are currently required.

All students from out of state must show proof of varicella (chickenpox) immunization.
