The New York State Department of Education requires that all children must be immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, poliomyelitis, measles, German measles mumps, hepatitis B and varicella. HIB is needed for Nursery and Pre-K attendance. Please check with your physician to insure that your child’s immunizations are up to date. New students must present written documents of immunization before they can be admitted to class. All grade 6 students must receive a new Tdap vaccine. You must be 11 years old to receive this. Proof of this vaccination, on a physician’s letterhead, is required to attend 6th grade. Varicella is also required.
All Kindergarten students must have a second measles vaccine. Contact your physician to see if your child has received this. It must be documented on the bottom of the physical exam form you received or on physician’s letterhead.
