WELCOME KAISER KNIGHTS!
Kaiser Elementary School is the home of the Kaiser Knights – noble in thought, word, and deed. Our mission is to build a “community of life-long learners.” In addition to our dedicated staff and bright students, Kaiser also is surrounded by a community of families that care deeply about the academic and life success of our students.
You will find that our expectations are high and that they are matched by our support in achieving them. It is our intention that when Kaiser students move up to intermediate and high school, they will be powerful thinkers with a strong knowledge base, skill set, sense of creativity, and commitment to community. In other words, Kaiser Knights are 21stcentury global citizens.

Dear Kaiser Families!
I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful summer! The office now is open and we are having a great time meeting new families as they enroll upcoming Kaiser Knights for the 2015-2016 school year. Our district’s summer academies (music, engineering, reading) recently ended, leaving plenty of time for students to head off to the beach and fun adventures before they return to school on Tuesday, September 8th.
While you are taking care of the endless summertime checklist, you may be planning to take your student for a physical exam. The Orange County Department of Education provided the information that follows about our state’s new vaccine law and requirements. Please read on if this might be helpful to you! In the meantime, remember your sunscreen!
From the Orange County Department of Education Newsroom: This summer, Governor Jerry Brown signed a new vaccine law, Senate Bill 277, which states that parents of students who attend public or private schools can no longer refuse to vaccinate their children based on a personal belief exemption. However, current vaccine laws that went into effect in 2014 are still in place for the 2015-16 school year. The first real impact of the new SB 277 law will be seen with students who are entering school in fall 2016.
What vaccines do students need to begin attending public school in fall 2015?
Are students required to have the flu vaccine?
Does a student entering seventh grade only need the pertussis vaccine?
If a child starting first grade is up to date on vaccines, do they still need a physical exam?
What about transitional kindergarten?
If a child is in the process of having their required vaccinations completed, can they still enroll in school?
If a parent has a personal belief exemption on file, will their child be allowed to go to school?
Is there a limit to how old a personal belief exemption form is?
If a student has had chicken pox in the past do they need to get the varicella vaccine?
OCDE focused on questions related to public school requirements. Additional information on current law, as well as SB 277, is available from the California Department of Public Health at Shots for School.
