Important 6th Grade Parent Alert
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health requires students entering 7th grade to have up to date immunizations including the following:
- Tdap Booster
- Meningococcal Vaccine- 1 dose (new for 2020-2021 school year)
Please provide the nurses office with documentation of their immunizations as well as an updated physical exam prior to the start of the school year. If they have already had these immunizations, please give the nurses office a copy this year so they will be all set to start school in the fall.
If you need assistance in having your child immunized with the Tdap, Varicella, Meningococcal or other vaccines you may contact the local Board of Public Health in Hyannis at 508-862-4648 or the Barnstable Board of Public Health at 508-375-6617 or your child’s healthcare provider.
Thank you for your cooperation.
