Hello parents, if your child ordered items from the Fundraiser, they will be delivered this Friday, October 20th from 2:30pm-4pm.  Items will not be available until that time. For those students that orders several items, we ask that a parent come out to pick up the items as it may be too difficult for students to carry home on their own.  Thank you in advance for participating & supporting our school and your child.

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.
