We are proud that you have chosen to enroll your child in our district. Our schools, Columbia
Elementary and Mountain View Middle, are safe, well maintained, exciting, stimulating and
success oriented. Our district Mission is to ensure learning for all children - no limits, no

relevance, providing more time and support, meeting the physical, intellectual, emotional, social
and moral needs of our children, and by being persistent and passionate about children.

7th Grade Requirements

All students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”).

This school immunization law affects all students in public and private schools.

Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.

Please check with your Primary Care Provider to schedule your child’s Tdap Booster shot.  Please bring the proof of immunization to your child’s school office.
