Dear Parent or Guardian:

The purpose of this notification is to make you aware of an immunization requirement for school entrance in September 2012.

All 6th grade students who are 11 years old must receive 1 dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, Acellular Pertussis vaccine (also known as Tdap).  Please send proof of this required immunization to the Elwood Middle School Health Office by August 30th 2012.

Sixth-grade students who are 10 years old are not required to receive this vaccine until they turn 11.  However, please schedule your child’s appointment and provide the date to the Elwood Middle School Health Office.

By Law, if proof of this immunization is not received, your child will not be able to attend classes.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at 266-5420 x423.



Sincerely,

Lisa McNamara, RN
