    This is a reminder that all students entering the 7th grade are required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis booster) and one dose of MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate vaccine).

    Although your student’s certificate may not have an expiration date or may be marked complete for school, the law requires that a current certificate be submitted verifying that the student has received both of these vaccines before they enter 7th grade.

    Certificates will also be considered in compliance if they provide evidence of medical exemption and have not expired.

    We do understand that, during the current Covid-19 pandemic, it may be difficult for you to obtain vaccines. As health care providers re-open, please plan to make an appointment for your child to receive these vaccines if they have not already gotten them.
