Immunization (Vaccination) Requirements for the State of California

 California State law requires that all students under age 18 years, preschool through grade 12 be immunized against certain diseases unless they are exempt for temporary or permanent medical reasons. At the time of registration current immunization records must be presented to verify that immunization status is up to date or student has a medical exemption. 

Students 4 – 6 years old (Transitional-Kindergarten/Kindergarten and above) 

  • 4 doses Polio (3 doses meet the requirement if at least one was given on or after the 4th birthday)
  • 5 doses DTaP (4 doses meet the requirement if at least one was given on or after the 4th birthday)
  • 2 doses MMR (Both given on or after the 1st birthday)
  • 3 doses Hepatitis B
  • 1 dose Varicella

Students 7 – 17 years old (Elementary or Secondary School)

  • 4 doses Polio (3 doses meet the requirement if one was given on or after the 2nd birthday)
  • 4 doses of DTaP, DTP, DT, Tdap or Td  (3 doses meet the requirement if the last dose was given on or after 2nd birthday.  At least one dose must be Tdap or DTaP/DTP given on or after 7th birthday for all 7th – 12 graders).
  • 1 dose MMR (Dose given on or after 1st birthday)
  • Varicella:  1 dose for ages 7-12, 2 doses for students starting with vaccinations ages 13 – 17).

7TH Grade (New admissions to 7th grade should meet the requirements for age 7 – 17 years and those noted below)

  • 2 doses of MMR or any measles-containing vaccine (Both doses given on or after 1st birthday)

Students with physician ordered medical exemptions must present those at registration.  A valid medical exemption must be a written statement from a licensed physician, documenting the child’s physical condition or medical circumstances are such that the immunization(s) is not appropriate.  The written statement must specify vaccines being exempted and whether the medical exemption is permanent or temporary (with an expiration date if the exemption is temporary).

Aeries Parent/Student Portal 

4 months ago

Aeries Portal Access
Middle/High School Parents and Students Only
 
Note:  The Aeries Portal may not be available to parents and students until the second week of school each year.

All parent and student accounts from last year will continue to work in the new year--even if the student has changed school sites.  If your have forgotten your password, simply click the "Forgot Your Password?" link.  If you have changed your email address (which functions as a username), please contact the school secretary so that he/she can put your new email address into the system.  

School sites will distribute Aeries Portal account creation information to students and parents of 6th graders and, also for any student in middle or high school grades who is new to the district this year.  In order to create a new account students and parents will need the student's Verification Passcode, or "VPC" (which is not the Email Confirmation Code) and the student's 9- or 10-digit ID number.   Please contact the school office if you are new to the District and did not receive this information by the second week of school.

Note:  The Aeries Portal server will send an automated message to your private email address as part of the Aeries Portal account creation process.  Be sure that your email account is set to allow incoming messages from the domain "ycjusd.us".  Since the emails will be automated, many email systems (notably AOL) reject such messages unless the exact email address or its domain name is added to the safe senders list. 

Also, the system will only allow the creation of one Aeries Portal log-in account using a single email address; however, parents may, once they have created their first new Aeries Portal account, link that account to other children they may have within the district provided that they also have the VPC and Permanent ID for those students, as well (see paragraph below).

Students under the age of 13 may not yet have an email account of their own, and parents may not yet be ready for them to have their own accounts.  In those cases, we encourage parents to either establish a parent-monitored email account for their child or simply allow your student to also use your Aeries Portal parent account once created.  Should the child click the Forgot Password link and the password gets reset, it is the parent who will receive the email with the new password--not the student.

Linking to Additional Children:  Once you have created an account for one student in your family, you may link to your other children through Aeries Portal by clicking the CURRENT STUDENT drop-down menu selector at the top right-hand side of the ABI home page and click the link to "Add Additional Student Not Currently Listed."  You will need to provide a separate Permanent ID number, telephone number, and VPC for each additional student to which you would like to link.

MRSA Information


Staphylococcus aureus is a bacteria that is often called “staph”. Staph is a common cause of skin infections. Staph is found on the skin or in the nose of healthy, as well as ill persons. At any time 25 to 30 percent of the population is carrying the staph bacteria. MRSA is a type of staph that is resistant to some antibiotics. About one percent of the population is carrying MRSA. 

Most people who carry staph in their nose or on their skin do not develop symptoms. If staph gets into cuts, abrasions, or other breaks in the skin, it may cause infections. These infections usually appear as pimples, boils, or abscesses and are often mistaken for "spider bites." 

Although MRSA is resistant to some antibiotics, there are others that are used to treat MRSA infection. Children with MRSA infection may require exclusion from the school setting when draining lesions are not able to be adequately covered with a dry dressing; however, if lesions can be covered by a dry dressing, children need not be excluded from school.

MRSA is most frequently spread by direct skin to skin contact with someone infected with the bacteria. It can also be spread by coming into contact with surfaces or objects contaminated with an infected persons wound drainage.  

Preventive actions you and your child can take include good hygiene, proper hand washing with soap and water, keeping all sports equipment clean and not sharing personal items. If your child develops a sore or infection, which seems to get worse rather than heal, we recommend that you contact your physician for evaluation and inform the school nurse. 

Your child’s health and safety is of the highest priority. 

An informational brochure about MRSA can be found in english HERE and in spanish HERE

An informational flyer about MRSA can be found HERE


Type 2 Diabetes Information


California Education Code 49452.7 requires all incoming 7th grade students  to receive information regarding type 2 diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes was rare in children a few years ago, but is becoming more common, especially for overweight youth.  The factors associated with increased risk for Type 2 diabetes are being overweight, family history of diabetes, inactivity and certain specific racial/ethnic groups.  Healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent the development of this and other diseases.  Visit the following California Department of Education webside for information:

Frequently Asked Questions for Parents

 

What documents are needed to register my child to attend Yucaipa-Calimesa schools?

1. Proof of Birth Date and Place (Birth Certificate of the child being registered)
2. Proof of Residency (utility bill, driver's license, etc. with home address)
3. Immunization Record of child being registered

In addition, the parent/guardian will need to fill out several district documents, which are available in all school officers. To determine which elementary or middle school to attend, please consult the Schools link above.

How do I register my child for kindergarten for next year?

Kindergarten Registration for the next school year begins on March 1. Kindergarten registration packets will not be available until that time. If you or someone you know has a child who will be five years old on or before September 1, he/she is eligible to be registered for kindergarten for the next school year. The Kindergarten Registration documents are posted on the website in February each year and are also available at the District Office and in elementary school offices, as well.

In order for a child to be registered, office staff must see his/her birth certificate, or other age verifications. Parents also need to bring records of their student's immunizations, serious diseases and injuries. The child's immunizations must be up-to-date before he/she can be officially registered. California state law requires students entering kindergarten to complete immunizations for diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, measles (rubella and rubeola), mumps, hepatitis B, and varicella. Parents must show proof of residency; this can be a utility bill, driver's license, etc. with home address.

Parents may take their children to the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Clinic at 222 Brookside Avenue, Redlands, telephone 909.798.8522, which administers low-cost immunizations on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, from 9:00-11:00 AM. Immunizations are also available at the Scherer Community Center, 12202 First Street in Yucaipa, the first and third Thursdays of each month from 1:30-3:30 PM. Immunizations to satisfy all state requirements will be available for $10 per visit, per child. The telephone number is 1.800.722.4794.

Children without required immunizations cannot be registered.

All first-graders should have a physical examination completed prior to the first day of school. A physical administered within 18 months prior to the first day of school for first graders will be accepted. Students from families in low-income brackets, or who have MediCal, can get physicals through the San Bernardino County Health Department. Information can be obtained by telephoning 909.387.4868. In addition, students must show evidence of a complete oral exam no later than May 31 of either the kindergarten or first grade year, depending on which year is the first year that the child attends public school.

Yucaipa also has a new healthcare service that offers immunizations:

Yucaipa Family Clinic
34675 Yucaipa Boulevard, Suite 101
Yucaipa, CA
909.790.5121

This service is offered by Redlands Community Hospital, and is open Monday, through Thursday from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM and Fridays from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM. The clinic also offers low cost/no cost health services for all ages.

You must bring the following documents with you in order to complete the registration process:

What to bring for Kindergarten Registration:

1. Proof of Birth Date and Place (Birth Certificate of child being registered)
2. Proof of Residency (Utility bill, Driver's license, etc. with home address)

Mentor teachers are selected by their peers to provide additional support to teachers by providing in-class assistance as well as development of curriculum.
