MEMO from the NurseSchool Year 2018-19Per NYS Department of Health Regulations, students entering sixth grade are required to have a Tdap vaccine within 2 weeks of their eleventh birthday.
If your child has already had their Tdap vaccine, please provide me with documentation before school starts on September 4, 2018 or they will not be able to attend school as of September 18, 2018.
If your child does not turn eleven prior to the start of the 2018-19 school year, you will have two weeks after your child’s eleventh birthday to have their Tdap vaccine administered. Documentation must be provided in order for them to remain in school.
Thank you for your help in making your child’s first year in the middle school successful.
