A note for 6th grade families from Nurse Viney

As you prepare your student for seventh grade, there are a few things to consider. This letter is to make you aware of what is required according to the Massachusetts State Law and the Mohawk and Hawlemont School Committees. All students entering 7th grade are required to have a tdap booster and a meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of the school year. This is normally done during 6th grade and can be obtained at your PCP’s office with just a nurse visit if it hasn’t already been done. A record of these immunizations must be in the health office prior to the start of school in August.

A physical exam is also required within one year prior to entry into that grade through completion of that school year. If your child has had a physical exam done on or after July 1st of the year they entered 6th grade, this exam will satisfy the requirement. Please ask the health care provider who performed the physical exam to fax a copy of the exam and immunizations to the School Nurse where your child attends.

If your child plans on playing sports, a current physical must be on file in the Mohawk School Nurse’s office. Sports physicals are only good for 13 months. If a physical is more than 13 months old, that child will not be allowed to practice or compete in any sport per MIAA rules.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Mohawk Health Office at 413-625-9811 ext. 1318 to discuss your concerns.
