Immunization Requirements for 2020-2021 School Year

Dear Families,
Any new students entering PreK or Kindergarten (who were not enrolled in PreK this year) and any student entering 2nd, 7th and 12th grades are required to show proof of a dental and HealthCheck/comprehensive health examination prior to entry into school.

Students in 7th and 12th grades are also required to have the Tdap and meningitis immunizations to enter school this year.

Please make an appointment with your child’s physican and dentist to ensure they have completed the examination requirements and provide proof to the school.

Students who are not up to date with the mandated immunizations will not be permitted to start school in the fall.
