Attention! Sixth Grade Parents!
Important Notice about Tdap Vaccine: In accordance with South Carolina law, all 7th grade students must have the Tdap vaccination. Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).
Woodmont Middle School requires that the vaccination (or exemption) be completed and all immunization certificates turned in to the school before the student starts orientation for the 2018-2019 year. Students will not receive their schedule if the school does not have all of their correct documentation on file. We appreciate everyone who has already completed the Tdap requirements. If you have not, please be advised of this policy and complete the requirements as soon as possible.
Please do not wait until the start of your child's 7th grade school year. This must be on file with our nurse prior to the start of 7th grade. Please feel free to fax proof of vaccination to 864-355-8587, or email it to our School Nurse, Roberta Shaw (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
