New state immunization requirements for the 2019-20 school year were posted. Letters have been sent to parents of those students needing updated shots according to our records. All incoming 7th graders are required to have a Tentanus booster AND Meningococcal shot. If you have questions or feel your student received the updates already please call the school health office. Consider getting the immunizations during Sports Physical appointment—some insurances pay for shots if received during an appointment/at the physician’s office.
Don’t forget, incoming Kindergarten and Preschool students need their immunizations uptodate as well. All incoming Kindergarteners are now required to have Hepatitis A as well as the usual DTaP; Polio, MMR and ChickenPox boosters.
If your student plans to participate in sports next year (7th and 8th ), they need to have a physical prior to any practice. (Volleyball practice usually starts the first day of school) The physical needs to be completed AFTER MAY 1st and needs to be on the KSHSAA four page form. Call your physician’s office now to get scheduled.
