Fall School Immunization Reminder

Will your child be starting Kindergarten or 6th grade next fall?  This summer will be an excellent time to have them visit their health care provider for an exam and to provide the needed vaccines required for school.  While the kids are out of school, it’s much easier to arrange for them to receive these required vaccines.  If you plan to do it early in the summer, you avoid the rush before classes start in the fall.  Provide the dates of their new vaccines to school so we can update their school records.  Now is the time to talk to your provider about the required and recommended vaccines for your child.


Medications -- If you provided medications (over-the-counter or prescription) for your child(ren) to take at school, YOU MUST pick the medication up PERSONALLY, as the law prohibits us from sending it home with a child.  If medications are not picked up on or before June 18th, they will be disposed of by the school.
