Welcome to Glen Edwards Middle School

Immunization Requirements for 2016-2017

Under a new law known as SB 277, 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 child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade. 
Below is a detailed letter containing important information and resources.  If you are unable to access this document, a copy of this letter is available in the GEMS front office.
