Important Registration Information
¨ Tdap booster shot is required for all incoming 7th graders
All incoming 7th graders must show proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (Tdap) prior to starting school. The Tdap booster shot must be given on or after the 10th birthday. By law, students who do not have proof of receiving a Tdap booster shot will not be able to start off the school year until proof of the immunization is provided to the school. (The tetanus-diphtheria booster shot, Td, will not meet the requirement). Remember, no immunization ~ no proof ~ no school.

7TH GRADE PARENTS – WEB INFO
Dear 7th Grade Parents,
We are very excited your child will be attending Newark Junior High and we look forward to meeting him or her on WEB Orientation Day on Monday, August 19th from 9:00am to 12:30pm. The sole purpose of WEB is to help 7th graders feel more comfortable as well as help them achieve success in their first year of junior high school.
The WEB 7th grade transition program is designed to both welcome and support 7th graders by assigning them two 8th grade WEB leaders as mentors during their first year. This WEB Leader is a responsible older student who was hand selected from a large pool of applicants and has met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our campus.
WEB Day Tips:
Your child is encouraged to dress comfortably and to not bring a backpack, purse or other like items as the day is quite active!
7th Grade students will not get schedules on WEB day!
Your child will get a free BBQ lunch on WEB day!
This is a student-only function so we encourage you to let your child attend on her or his own.
We look forward to meeting you and your student on orientation day!
