ATTENTION ALL 7TH GRADE PARENTS:

2018/2019 SEVENTH GRADE VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
The Ohio Department of Health has revised the School Immunization Requirements effective January 4, 2010. All students are to receive an additional dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) vaccine BEFORE entering the seventh grade. If your child has received a Tdap vaccine within 5 years of entering the seventh grade (2014 or later), this will meet the requirement, but verification is still required. Please drop off a copy of updated immunizations to the office prior to the beginning of 2018/2019 school year.
Additionally, beginning with the start of the 2018-2019 school year, one dose of meningococcal vaccine is required prior to entry into the 7th grade.
