Pertussis vaccine needed for 2011 school year
The Claremont Unified School District requires that all
students entering 7th through 12th grades for the 2011-12
school year will need proof of an adolescent whooping
cough booster shot (Tdap) before starting school. A copy
of immunization records or written proof of a Tdap shot
will be collected at your child’s school on registration day.
Students who do not have proof of receiving a Tdap
booster shot will not be able to start school until proof is
provided. The tetanus-diptheria booster shot, Td, will not
meet the requirement.
Tdap will help prevent pertussis (also known as whooping
cough), diphtheria and tetanus (also known as lockjaw).
Registration at El Roble is as follows: 8th graders on
Wednesday, August 24th; 7th graders on Friday, August
The Claremont High School registration schedule is:
Incoming seniors on Monday, August 22nd; juniors on
Tuesday, August 23rd; sophomores on Wednesday, August
24th and Freshman on Thursday, August 25th.
For the next school year (2012-13) and all future school
years, all students entering into 7th grade only will need
proof of a Tdap shot to start school.
The first day of school for CUSD is Tuesday, August
