According to the Tennessee Department of Health, Hepatitis B, Varicella (Chicken pox’s) and Tetanus are required for 7th grade entry. If your child is current on all immunizations the TDOH has issued a new Official Certificate that is required for entry into school effective July 1, 2010.
Please check with your child’s Doctor or Health Department to see if vaccines are needed to enter 7th grade.
Hepatitis B (series of 3)
Varicella (chicken pox’s) series of 2
Tetanus; needed to enter 7th grade.
New official Certificate. (All 7th grade students will need this form completed)
If your child has had the vaccines, we must have a form from the Health Department or your Doctor documenting this.
All information and documentation is due by the start of school August of 2016. PLEASE NOTE YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RETURN TO SCHOOL WITHOUT THIS INFORMATION.
Please return all information to the Nurse or the office.
If you have any questions, please call the office, at 837-7282 ext 106
