Health Care for all Families

El Departamento de Educación de California quiere ayudar a las familias asegurarse que tengan acceso a cobertura médica.  Para este fin, han creado una colaboración con Covered California, la Colaboración de Niños TODOS ADENTRO para Salud y la agencia de Cobertura para California e Iniciativos de Salud para ayudar a las escuelas proveer información sobre opciones de cuidado médica.  Por favor de hacer clic AQUÍ para más información.  Adicionalmente, puede visitar All In For Health.

2016 Immunization Requirements

The Governor signed Senate Bill 277 which removed the personal belief exemption (PBE) from school immunization requirements.  This means that beginning January 1, 2016, the Oakley Union Elementary School District will no longer accept PBE forms for children entering preschool, kindergarten and 7th grade.  A personal belief exemption submitted prior to January 1, 2016 will remain valid until the student enters kindergarten, transitional kindergarten or 7th grade.
