From The Nurse

NOTICE TO CIURRENT 6TH-GRADE PARENTS: Reminder that students must have the Tdap booster & meningococcal (MenACWY) vaccine prior to school starting next fall.  There is NO grace period for the meningococcal vaccine – that means no admittance to school without it.

 

NOTICE TO CURRENT 11TH-GRADE PARENTS:  Reminder that students must have meningococcal (MenACWY) vaccine at, or after, age 16 prior to school starting next fall.  There is NO grace period allowed for this vaccine. Please note that Meningitis B vaccine does NOT count toward the requirement.

 

If your student already has a waiver, you do not need to obtain a new one.

 

I have complied lists of those who are already compliant & who will need the vaccine (Tdap and/or meningococcal), per latest records on IRIS (statewide database).  Those lists will be updated near the end of the year & notices will go out to those who are affected & need vaccine to be compliant for next fall.

 

If you have any questions, or are unsure if your child needs this, please feel free to contact me at school.
