Under a strict new law, SB277, families will no longer have the option of claiming exemption from California vaccination requirements based on personal beliefs.
As of July 1, 2016, all children must be fully immunized before enrolling in public or private school or daycare for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Please note that no student will be allowed to attend La Jolla Country Day School (or any other public, private or charter school in California) if they do not meet California vaccination requirements—this is the law.
Children with medical conditions, who meet specific criteria, may be exempt with a written statement from their doctor. Personal belief exemptions already on file for a child currently attending La Jolla Country Day School will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten or Grade 7.
