Attention Parents of 6th graders
Updated Immunization Record Requirement for All Incoming 7th Grade Students
A new immunization record will be required of ALL incoming 7th-grade students prior to the first day of school. Immunization records may be submitted to your campus nurse. You can find the email for your school nurse under the Health Services Staff tab.
An up-to-date record showing proof of the following vaccinations or an appropriate exemption affidavit is required to begin 7th grade:
Meningococcal: One dose of the quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine is required on or after the student’s 11th birthday. If a student received the vaccine at 10 years of age, this will satisfy the requirement. Any meningococcal shot administered during the child’s 9th year will not count towards compliance.
Tetanus: One booster dose of Tdap/Td if at least 5 years have passed since the last tetanus-containing vaccine.
Your student will not be allowed to attend school if the School Nurse does not receive an updated immunization record.
If you have any questions, please contact your campus nurse.
