SDUHSD Board Policy 5441.31

                        A parent’s personal record of immunizations is not acceptable under the law.  A copy of a signed record from a physician or medical clinic must be included in the registration packet for review by the governing authority of the school. (California Administrative Code, Title 17, Part 1, Chapter 4, Article 5, Section 606580). Physician-documented varicella (chickenpox) disease history or immunity meets the varicella requirement, including out-of-state entrant’s grade 7 -12.

Please provide a complete copy of your student’s yellow California Immunization Record or other signed medical verification documenting that your student has completed all required immunizations, or is in the process of completing the immunization series appropriate for your student’s age.  A copy must be included with your students’ registration packet.  We do not call your students’ prior school for these records.

Thank you for your cooperation in getting you student ready to attend SDUHSD.  It is mandated that all incoming students have up-to-date immunization records.  The SDUHSD has a “No Shot, No School “policy. (5112.2/AR-1)
