*Important Health Information for the 2017-2018 school year:
- One dose of meningococcal vaccine is required for students who will be in 7th or 8th grade. If your child had the first dose before 7th grade, then another dose is not required until 12th grade.
- Two doses will be required before 12th grade. Most students entering 12th grade got their first dose when they were younger and are now due for their second dose, or booster. This booster is needed because protection from the vaccine decreases over time.
- A small number of teens who received two doses before their 16th birthday may need a third dose on or after their 16th birthday in order to enter 12th grade.
- The only teens who will not need a second dose before 12th grade are those who got their first dose on or after their 16th birthday.
It's best to check with your doctor to see whether or not your child needs the vaccine. Students who are not up-to-date will not be allowed to attend school until they are vaccinated.
In order to try out for a sports team, each participant needs to have a signed Health History Form, a Risk of Injury Statement, and a current physical exam on file in the Health Office, and be signed off by the school provider. Check out the Athletics page for more information.
To obtain working papers, see Mrs. Gracy in the health office. You must have a current New York State physical exam on file in the Health Office.
See Mrs. Depperman for a copy of your immunization record for college.
If you have any questions, please call 433-8249.
You will receive a copy of your immunization record with your diploma = keep this for records as your school health records will be destroyed on your 27th birthday.
