6TH GRADE PARENTS: PLEASE TURN IN AN UPDATED COPY OF STUDENT SHOTS RECORD WITH THE 2 NEW VACCINES (MCV4 AND TDAP) THAT ARE REQUIRED FOR 7TH GRADE WITH THE MEDICAL AIDE. SHOT RECORDS CAN BE TURNED IN NOW IF ITS ALREADY UPDATED.


WE WILL BE SENDING OUT REMINDER LETTERS TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE VACCINES. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO NEXT SCHOOL YEAR WITHOUT THOSE 2 VACCINATIONS.

ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS

This letter is to inform you of immunization requirements that will impact students entering the 7th grade. 7th grade is required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine.



*Tdap Booster

*Meningococcal (MCV4, Menactra)




Please contact your health care provider or local health department if your child needs these vaccines.



All immunizations should be completed by the first day of school. However, you will have 30 calendar days from the first day of school to provide the required up-to-date immunization record for your child. If, at the end of the 30-day period, a student has not received a subsequent dose of vaccine, the student is not in compliance and the school shall exclude the student from school attendance until the required dose is administered.




If the student has already received these 2 vaccines please bring an updated shot record to the school. Please contact the school for any questions or concerns.




El propósito de esta carta es para informarle de los requisitos de inmunización que tendrá de estudiantes de 7 º grado. Los estudiantes que ingresan a 7 º grado están obligados a tener una dosis de vacuna Tdap (tétanos, difteria y tos ferina) y una dosis de vacuna conjugada antimeningocócica.


* Vacuna de refuerzo Tdap

* Meningocócica (MCV4, Menactra)



Póngase en contacto con su médico o departamento local de salud si su hijo necesita estas vacunas.



Todas las vacunas deben ser completadas por el primer día de escuela. Sin embargo, usted tendrá 30 días desde el primer día de escuela para proporcionar el registro de vacunación actualizada necesaria para su hijo. Si, al final del período de 30 días, un estudiante no ha recibido una dosis posteriores de vacuna, el estudiante no está en cumplimiento y la escuela excluirá al estudiante de asistencia a la escuela hasta que se administra la dosis requerida.



Si el estudiante ya ha recibido estas 2 vacunas favor de traer un registro de vacunas actualizado a la escuela. Póngase en contacto con la escuela para cualquier pregunta o preocupación.

SCHOOL IS ALMOST NEAR ITS END

As the end of the school year approaches, I would like to take this time to remind you to pick up your child’s medication the last week of school. By school policy, I am required to discard/ destroy all remaining medication that has not been taken home. The school cannot store any medication for the following school year.
