Be Ready for 2018-2019!
August will be here before you know it! All incoming 8th graders are required by law to have the Tdap and Meningococcal Meningitis conjugate (MCV4) vaccines. Please be aware:
- Tdap is the adolescent booster for Tetanus, Diptheria, & Pertussis
- Both vaccines can be given after 11 years of age
- You may need to verify with your doctor's office to know if your student has had these vaccines
- You can give updated shot records to the nurse any time after vaccines are given
- If you are contacted by the nurse's office regarding vaccines, it is because updated immunization records have not been received
- Waiting until August for vaccines could result in limited vaccine availability and/or limited appointment times
- Please be proactive and take care of immunization requirements so your student is not excluded from the first days of school
Students without proof of immunization WILL NOT be allowed to start school on the first day of the 2018-2019 school year and will be excluded until they are compliant with immunizations.
If you are unsure if your child is current on the Tdap and Meningitis Conjugate vaccines, please call your doctor's office for a current vaccination record to give to the school nurse. Please call 816-736-7313 with any questions.
BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION
Please provide the nurse with:
- Updated immunization records
- Updated Action Plans and emergency medications (asthma, food allergies, diabetes, seizures, etc.)
