New requirements for beginning the 2011-2012 school year are that ALL students in ALL grades will need to have a second varicella shot. Exclusion of students without proper Varicella immunization started on October 10, 2011. If your child is currently a student and still needs this immunization, you have already received notification from the health office. In most cases when parents have received this notification, the students have already had this immunization and we have just not received the updates for their records. If this is the case, simply contact your physician's office and have them fax the updated immunization record to 387-3492.
Children attending 7th grade need the Tdap immunization (if 5 years have elapsed since the last tetanus shot) and the meningococcal immunization.
Your child may be exempt from immunizations for medical or religious reasons if we have a signed statement of exemption in his/her file. If a student is exempt, he/she may be removed from school if an outbreak occurs.
