Senior Meetings

All seniors should meet with their school counselor at this time to discuss post-graduation plans. See Student Services to schedule an appointment. Also, as students receive admission responses, it’s important they tell their counselor and update their Naviance accounts with the results.

Many scholarship opportunities are already posted on seniors’ Naviance accounts. Students should check it regularly as new applications become available throughout the academic year. Read deadlines & requirements carefully; they may require letters of recommendation, transcripts, and/or other supplemental documents. See Student Services with questions.

Proof of Vaccination

As a reminder in an effort to better understand our current vaccination rate, and to assess how close we are to the 80% threshold we would like to give parents the option to provide proof of vaccination for your child. If your child has received the COVID-19 vaccination and you would like this information added to your child’s health record, please provide proof of vaccine through one of the following options:


  • Reply to this email with an attached copy of vaccination card (vaccination@tyngsboroughps.org)

  • Secure Health Office Fax (978) 649-9194

  • Photocopy your student’s proof of vaccination and send it into the school nurse in a sealed envelope addressed to the Health Office


While the school nurses have access to the Massachusetts State Immunization Registry which is a database that keeps confidential vaccination records in one place. Individuals choose to opt into this database which is typically offered by the primary care physician, or they may decline to have the information shared. As a result, our nurses do not always have the most updated information. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
