Important Dates for Local Brentwood Schools

Keep up with your busy child's schedule by taking note of important upcoming events at school.

With so many schools located within the Brentwood area, it's important for parents and students alike to be aware of important dates and events throughout the beginning of the school year. To start off on the right foot, review the information below to ensure your student stays on track.

Also, don't forget to check out your child's school website, which is a fantastic resource for information regarding upcoming events.


Whooping Cough Vaccination Information:

From the California Department of Education website: "Assembly Bill 354 was signed into law in September 2010. As a result, students entering or advancing to grades seven through twelve in the 2011–12 school year are required to show proof of immunization with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap). The new requirement goes into effect July 1, 2011, for one year and affects all students—current, new, and transfers—in public and private schools."

"On July 1, 2012, AB 354 will require only students who are entering or advancing into grade seven to twelve show proof of immunization a pertussis booster vaccine (on or after the seventh birthday). Immunization with Tdap can protect students who have not yet been immunized against the ongoing risk of pertussis and meets the forthcoming requirement for the 2011–12 school year."
