8th, 12th grade immunizations
Missouri State Law requires all students entering eighth grade to have a current Tdap immunization on file. For the 2019-2020 school year, students entering eighth grade and 12th grade will also be required to have a current Meningococcal vaccination on file with the school nurse as well before they may begin the school year. Parents are encouraged to make arrangements to have these vaccinations administered to their children before the school year, which begins Aug. 27. Students will not be allowed to attend classes without these immunizations on file in the nurse’s office. All incoming eighth grade students will be required to have both the Tdap and the Meningococcal vaccinations. If you have questions, contact Health Services Coordinator Casey Smith at 829-6588.
