Immunization Requirements

Before admission to La Quinta, all students must show proof of immunizations against the following illnesses:
  • Poliomyelitis,
  • DPT (diphtheria, pertussus, tetanus),
  • Hepatitis B,
  • Varicella or proof of having had chicken pox
  • MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
Tuberculosis Test - Before admission new students from within the state of California must provide documentation of having a TB test after age 4. If they do not have this documentation then they will need to have a new TB test before they can complete registration and attend classes. Students entering La Quinta from outside the state of California must provide documentation of a TB test since entry into the state. If a test is positive (greater than 10mm) a copy of a chest x-ray report must also be submitted and cleared by the school nurse before registration is completed. GGUSD operates a clinic at the Assessment and Registration Center at Cook Elementary school that provides immunization, TB testing and school physicals. Call 663-6411 for information regarding clinic times and services.
