ATTENTION parents of rising 6th graders!

We have just received notification from the Virginia Department of Health that:

As of July 1, 2014, ALL children ENTERING 6th Grade MUST have the Tdap IMMUNIZATION. 

Previously, if your child did not turn 11 until after school started, it was permissible to get a doctor’s note indicating the child would get the shot when the child turned 11. However, the state no longer accepts this. 

**Make your apointment early...the doctors’ offices get very busy at the end of the summer.
**When your child gets the shot, please bring the immunization documentation to school.

If a child does not have the immunization by Sept. 2, 2014, the child will not be allowed to start school.

If you have any questions, please call Nancy Griggs, School Nurse, at school.
