Back in School!

2021-22 School Year | COVID-19 Updates

Staying Healthy & Safe on Campus!

KIPP SoCal continues to follow California State Department of Health guidelines as it pertains to vaccination mandates and masks.

On Oct 1, California State Governor Gavin Newsom announced plans to mandate the COVID-19 vaccination for all in-person K-12 students. This will make the proof of the Covid-19 vaccine a necessary immunization record needed to enroll into any California school, public or private.

We expect all students 12+ will need to be vaccinated by August 2022 and all students ages 5-11 will need to be vaccinated by January 2023. Schools will be sharing information regarding collection of COVID immunization records for all students.
