As spring arrives, we already start thinking ahead to next school year! Incoming 7th graders will have vaccination requirements due prior to the start of the new school year. You are able to view your child’s current vaccination records on Skyward under the Health Info tab. This information can only be viewed from a desktop computer. There are 2 vaccines that are particular to incoming 7th graders, and all 7th grade students must provide proof of receiving the following:
one dose of Tdap given within the last 5 years
one dose of meningococcal vaccine on or after their 11th
Many students already have received both of these vaccines. In order for your student to pick up their schedule on schedule pick up night on August 8th, your child must have their vaccination record current, including these 2 vaccines.
You are welcomed and encouraged to obtain these immunizations starting now and provide the proof prior to the end of this school year. If you choose to wait until summer, you are more than welcomed to email me the proof of vaccinations over the summer. By doing so, we can help your student have a great transition to 7th grade, and prevent any delays in getting their schedules!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
