Guidance News

Your child’s 7th grade year is right around the corner. To enroll in classes for 7th grade, your child must be fully
immunized or have a new permanent or temporary medical exemption issued through California Immunization
Registry (CAIR ME). Per California State Law, SB277, 7th grade students cannot have personal beliefs exemptions.
If your student had a Permanent Medical Exemption on file, you will need to provide a new medical exemption issued
through CAIR ME. All immunization exemptions expire at the end of 6th grade. If you have not already done so,
we suggest you make plans for your child to receive the necessary immunizations or speak with your physician
regarding permanent or temporary medical exemptions. More information on 7th grade immunization requirements can be found here.
