Immunizations

New students and transfer students are required by state law to produce evidence of immunization against the following diseases: measles, varicella, rubella, hepatitis B, polio, diphtheria and mumps. Until such evidence is produced, students will not be admitted to school.

Please note that all students entering 7th grade must be immunized for Hepatitis B prior to the first day of school.

All students entering 6th grade will be required to submit proof of immunity against varicella (chickenpox). Proof of immunity means 1 dose of varicella vaccine if the child is under 13 years of age and 2 doses of varicella vaccine if the child is 13 years old or older.

All children enrolling in 6th through 10th grades, if born on or after January 1, 1994, should have received one dose of Tdap (Tetanus toxoid, reduced Diphtheria toxoid and acellular Pertussis vaccine) during their life.

Any questions or concerns regarding the immunization policy should be addressed to the school nurse in the health office of the appropriate building.
