This message is for Colin Powell 6th Grade students only.  Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California since 2010.  California law now requires that students entering the 7th grade must be immunized against pertussis (Tdap booster).  We are trying to clear students now so there will be no delay in starting school in September.  

 

Please bring/send the immunization record to the school nurse:
1) If your student has received the Tdap Booster (after age 7)
2) After your student has received the required immunization

 

Thank you to those 6th graders who have already turned in proof of the Tdap immunizations.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school nurse, Marcia Elliott Gant RN.

Hello Eighth Grade Families,

 

The deadline to complete your enrollment into the pathway of your choice for high school on ParentVue is 11:59pm, tomorrow night, March 1, 2017.

 

Failure to do so by the deadline will result in the loss of the acceptance, and your student will be assigned to a school and a pathway in the district where there is space available.

 

To set your intent, you can do it one of three ways:

  1. Log into ParentVue, click on “School of Choice”, click on the (blue) intend button next to the pathway you prefer, and then click on the (brown) certify button at the bottom of the page. When this is done, the screen will be green and you will get a confirmation email. Keep this email for your records.
  2.  
  3. You can visit your middle school or K8 Office and ask for assistance from the counseling staff, who will help you and print a confirmation page for you.

 

  1. You can call the Choice Helpline at (562)997-8306, or visit Team High School Choice at 1515 Hughes Way, Third Floor, where our team will be happy to assist you in setting your intention and printing your confirmation. We will only be available until 4:40pm tomorrow afternoon, as our building closes for the day.

 

Regardless of which option you choose, it is very important that you not miss this deadline. Even if you are submitting an appeal for a different program, set an intent to one of your selected programs while we are reviewing the appeals. The intention set will have no effect on any appeal decision.

 

Please double check that you have clicked on both the blue “intend” button to the right of your preferred pathway, and the brown “certify” button at the bottom of the page to complete the process. You will receive an email confirmation. Please keep this for your records as proof of completion.

 

We thank you for your attention to this matter, and wish you and your family a pleasant evening.
