ATTENTION PARENTS OF CURRENT SIXTH AND ELEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS!

The Ohio Department of Health has the following requirements for students in Grades 7 and 12 for the 2019-2020 school year:

All 7th grade students must have received either a Tdap or a Td booster shot. This requirement has been in effect since the 2010-2011 school year.

All students entering 7th grade in the 2019-2020 school year are required to have received either a Tdap or a Td vaccine and a Meningococcal Vaccine

All students entering 12th grade in the 2019-2020 school year are required to have proof of a meningitis booster or an initial meningitis vaccine.

  • The second (booster) dose must be given on or after the student's 16th birthday
  • If the first vaccine was given after the 16th birthday, a second dose is NOT required.

The school will need proof in writing that your child has been immunized with these vaccines by the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Failure to do so is cause for exclusion from school after the 14th day of the new school year. This is a requirement from the Ohio Department of Health. 

If you have any further questions please contact our school nurse.  Records may also be faxed to school at 330-394-3665.
