New vaccination requirements for grades PK, K, 6, 7, and 12 -- please read
Please remember your child has a new vaccination requirement for school attendance.
Students in grades PK, K, 6, 7, and 12 are required by state law to have additional vaccinations before the start of school. Failure to comply will result in your child not being allowed to attend school.
PK and K need their booster shots.
Grade 6 requires 1 Tdap-adult tetanus, pertussis booster.
Grade 7 requires 1 meningococcal vaccination.
Grade 12 requires 2 meningococcal vaccinations. If your child has had one after the age of 16 they only need the one. Otherwise they must have 2 shots.
This is a state requirement, and is not optional. Please send proof of their vaccination to the nurse's office as soon as possible to prevent your child from being excluded from school. Contact your healthcare provider to see if your child has had the required vaccinations.
Grade 7 students most likely received the meningococcal vaccination when they received Tdap for grade 7, but some did not.
Please have your provider fax the information to 315-653-7500. Thank you.
