Immunization Reminder for all Rising 7th Graders

     A booster dose of T-dap vaccine is required for all children attending public school who are entering the 7th grade if five years or more have passed since their last dose of tetanus/diphtheria toxid.  Rising 7th graders must have their proof of T-Dap vaccination before entering 7th Grade.  Without the proof, the student will not be allowed to return to school until proof of vaccination is provided.  That is the final date for your child to have the shot and return to school. If your child has already received this booster shot, please be sure to bring a copy of your child's shot records to the school office, so we can update our school records.  Should you have any questions, please contact, Mrs. Annette Woods, school registrar  980-343-5515.
