Last Week of School Celebration - Hawkapalooza

There a few volunteer spots open, see the sign-up sheet here  for the various stations.  Queries? Contact Alice  here .

ACTION REQUIRED! Whooping Cough (Pertussis) Tdap Vaccination
Students entering 7th grade next school year are required by law to provide proof of a whooping cough booster, or Tdap shot (Td does not meet the requirement). Students will not receive their class schedule at the Luau or will not be admitted on the first day of school if proof is not received before these events.

Bring an updated copy of your child's immunization record showing proof of Tdap to the school office now. Do not mark or highlight this record. If there is a verified medical condition against vaccination, you are required to provide the school with a doctor's written statement. The information required in this statement may be found in the FAQ section on the Shots for School website here Acceptable proof of immunization includes:  
  • Print-out or copy of immunization record from your child's clinic or physician's office
  • A copy of the yellow immunization record
  • A certification of Tdap booster notice from your child's clinic, physician's office, or pharmacy 
All these documents must have your child's name, date of birth, date Tdap was administered, and a stamp or physician's signature from the clinic.  For more information about the law and whooping cough, visit here, or contact Nancy McMahon, Health Services Assistant, here or (650) 321-7140, x5912.

Hillview Library
Get Ready for Summer!

Although the library will be closed over the summer, OverDrive is available 24/7 to check out eBooks and audiobooks for summer reading. See a librarian for help with OverDrive, and check out this guide to our Audiobook collection here . We have a great collection of books.
