6th Grade Immunization Information

 

6th Grade Parents/Guardians

There are new immunization requirements for all 6th grade students who will be entering the 7th grade next school year. These new requirements began in the 2009-2010 school year.

ALL students entering the 7th grade must have DOCTOR'S PROOF of the following immunizations:

  1. Tetanus Booster (within the last 5 years before the start of school)
  2. Varicella, a second dose
  3. Meningococcal

When you visit the Doctor this year, please ask about these immunizations. If you've already updated your child's immunization records, please send a copy to the school as soon as possible.

Many students already have the required shots, however the school does not have a record of this unless you bring one in. 

If shot records are not updated this year, your child will not be able to attend the first day of the 2012-2014 school year.  Please avoid long lines at the beginning of the school year and take care of this requirement on your next visit to your family physician.
