5th Graders Promoting to 6th Grade
TDap vaccine is required at the age of 11. Letters have only been sent to those students needing the vaccine. Students that don't have letters being sent home include students who have already had the TDap and students that will NOT turn 11 until after August 2, 2017. If a student turns 11 before August 2, 2017, and does NOT have a TDap they will NOT be given a schedule at the Middle School they will be attending.
