Lunch Menu – Lunch Menus 2023
This year seems to be just flying by. As we begin to prepare for next year, we would like to remind our current 6th-grade parents that all incoming seventh-graders must be up to date with his/her required immunizations.
As required by California law, (Health and Safety Code 120325 – 120375), parents need to provide proof of receiving the Tdap vaccine (Pertussis – Whooping Cough Booster).
All students entering 7th – 12th grades must have proof of a Tdap booster shot. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday. This means ALL current 6th graders must get up to date.
It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child get their vaccination and to avoid appointment delays.
Receiving the immunizations and ensuring they are up to date now, will not only protect them against Pertussis, but also ensure class placement and prevent exclusion from school in the coming year. No students will be allowed to attend school next year without up to date immunizations.
Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up to date immunizations to Kay Fagundes in the school office before May 19, 2023.
For questions, please call your primary physician today or call the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Program, at (209) 468-3481.
Again, no students will be allowed to attend school next year, without up-to-date immunizations. We are requesting TDaP proof to be brought to the office by May 19, 2023.

We often place demands on our kids without realizing they are unrealistic. The good news is that parents are taking time to explore what their children need.
Instead of scheduling every minute of our kid’s day, we’re leaving room for open-ended play. We recognize the benefit of allowing our children to explore, ask questions, problem-solve, and remain curious. Kids need space to be kids. Rigid schedules and step-by-step directions do not give kids the room to thrive and grow.
