Immunizations

To ensure that your child can start school, please make sure ALL forms and immunizations are completed BEFORE the first day of school.

Kindergarten Immunizations: due before the first day of kindergarten

Immunization Schedule:

Starting July 1, 2019, Students Admitted at TK/K-12 Need:

  • Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP, DTP, Tdap, or Td) — 5 doses (4 doses OK if one was given on or after 4th birthday. 3 doses OK if one was given on or after 7th birthday.) For 7th-12th graders, at least 1 dose of pertussis-containing vaccine is required on or after 7th birthday.
  • Polio (OPV or IPV) — 4 doses (3 doses OK if one was given on or after 4th birthday)
  • Hepatitis B — 3 doses (not required for 7th grade entry)
  • Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) — 2 doses (Both given on or after 1st birthday)
  • Varicella (Chickenpox) — 2 doses

These immunization requirements also apply to students entering transitional kindergarten.

California schools are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at TK/Kindergarten through 12th grade and all students advancing to 7th grade before entry. Parents must show their child's Immunization Records as proof of immunization.

1st Grade Health Exam:

Report of Health Examination for School Entry: due before the start of 1st grade, or within 90 days thereafter.


7th Grade Immunization Requirement

  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) - 1 dose (Whooping cough booster usually given at 11 years and up)
  • Varicella (Chickenpox) - 2 doses (Usually given at ages 12 months and 4-6 years)

All current and incoming 7th grade students are required by law to have a whooping cough booster (Tdap vaccine) and second varicella vaccine on or before the first day of school.

If your child has not had a Tdap vaccine and second varicella vaccine, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible with your doctor and submit documentation to the Crocker school office.

*Students who do not have proof of the Tdap booster and second varicella vaccine on file prior to the start of school will not receive their Chromebook until proof of the booster is brought to the school office.

*Under a new law, SB277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into a California school.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
