Re: Immunizations required prior to 2017-18 school year

     It is time to start planning for the 2017-18 school year, and making sure that our students have the required immunizations before the start of school this fall, is a top priority.
     All students currently in grades 6 and 11 are required to have immunizations prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 15, 2017.
     Sixth grade students must have a Tdap and a meningitis shot before entering seventh grade. Eleventh grade students must have a minimum of one meningitis shot after the age of 16. Two meningitis shots are required if the first dose was before age 16.
     Students without documentation of vaccination will be excluded in August.
Contact your child's school nurse with any questions.
