Tdap Vaccine for Incoming 7th Graders

All students starting 7th grade in August will need proof of a whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot before starting school.

California State law requires that all incoming 7th grade students get a Pertussis booster shot, called the Tdap booster, before starting junior high.  The Tdap vaccine can keep your child and family protected from whooping cough.  Students who have not received this shot prior to the beginning of the school year on August 17 will not be allowed to start junior high. 

We strongly recommend getting your child vaccinated. Getting the Tdap shot now will not only help protect your child against the ongoing threat of whooping cough but will also meet the school entry requirement for junior high. 

We want to make sure your child starts junior high on time.  We encourage you to contact your child’s doctor or health care provider now to schedule an immunization appointment.  Also, many local pharmacies offer the Tdap booster.  Some children may qualify for free immunizations through the Vaccines for Children Program. 

 If your child has already obtained the Tdap booster shot, please send verification to the school as soon as possible.


Electronic Reader Board

Bidwell Jr. High students, staff, and PTA are respectfully requesting donations for a new electronic reader for the front of our school.  This would be a wonderful addition to our upcoming remodel and refacing starting in 2015.  It would be instrumental in helping us inform our parents and community of the many events and positive activities our students and school are involved in. Our PTA is spearheading the project and would greatly appreciate any support to achieve this goal. Chico local business - Hupp Signs & Lighting has graciously taken on our project, as they have for many other schools in our area.

How to Donate:

1.    Electronically at http://www.gofundme.com/msrv9s

2.    Write a check to Bidwell PTA and turn it in to the main office.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We greatly appreciate your support!
