Attention 6th Grade Parents

Immunizations Needed for 17-18 school year:

Your child will be required to show proof of the Tdap (within the last 5 years) and Meningococcal (MCV4 ) on or after their 11th birthday (Note: if student received it at age 10, this will satisfy the requirement) in order to start the 7th grade. Notices are being sent home this week for students who have not yet met this requirement. Please ask your child if they received a notice. If your child has already received these immunizations, please send in the record now. If you are unsure about whether or not your child turned in the record or needs these immunizations, then please do not hesitate to contact Merry Garcia, School Nurse, at (210) 397-8409.
