Parents are reminded that rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or a religious or medical exemption must be on file or turned in prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 18, 2015.
Parents must provide their child's school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption or a medical exemption.  Parents are encouraged to submit documentation as soon as possible.  If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school.
