Attention 5th Grade Parents

Virginia state law requires that all rising sixth grade students provide written proof of having received a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) booster shot if at least five years have passed since the last shot (listed as Dtap, Td or DT).  Please plan to have your child immunized as soon as possible and provide documentation of the shot to me before the end of the school year.  Failure to comply with this state law will result in your child’s exclusion from school on the very first day of middle school in September 2013.  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
