A Reminder to Parents of Incoming Sixth Graders
A packet was mailed home in January regarding health requirements for entry into the sixth grade. A current physical examination (dated 8-15-16 or later) is required for entry into the sixth grade. All children entering sixth grade must show proof of receiving 1 dose of Tdap, 3 hepatitis B vaccines, 2 doses of varicella vaccines and 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Please have the Certificate of Child Health Examination (sixth grade physical examination form) completed by the physician and documentation showing proof of required vaccines and return it to the school nurse by the first day of school in August 2016. Sixth grade students who have not had the above requirements completed will be excluded from school.
