  • To confirm enrollment at Western Sierra, students who have indicated "Returning" to Western Sierra by the Annual Intent deadline of January 31, 2020 will need to:
    1. Complete a Student Records Request. In August 2020, the completed request form will be sent to student's current school to release cumulative records to Western Sierra.  
    2. Provide a Current Immunization Record.  California schools are required to check immunization records for all new TK-12 admisions and all students advancing to 7th grade before entry (applies also to transfer students).  Record must include student's name and show all required immunizations for student's age and grade.
      • Students Entering Grade 7 -  Proof of Tdap Booster and Varicella #2 is required.
      • Students Entering Grades 8-12 - At least one dose of pertussis-containing vaccine after the 7th birthday is required.

  • Email will be sent to continuing families around March 20th with required documents and instructions.

  • Once enrollment documents  #1, #2 and #4 are provided to/reviewed by Western Sierra, the continuing student will be officially enrolled at Western Sierra and any sibling(s) on the Western Sierra waiting list will be prioritized (moved up the waiting list).  Placement of siblings is not guaranteed, as enrollment is on a space-available basis.

STUDENTS LEAVING OUR SCHOOLS (going to other schools) must complete a Student Withdrawal Notification (SWN) and provide completed withdrawal notification to school as soon as possible (before student's last day in attendance).
