• NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENT FOR RISING SENIORS:

    Rising Seniors - Meningococcal Booster Vaccine |  North Carolina law now requires all rising 12th graders receive a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. This includes those students enrolled in the Virtual Academy. The vaccination must be done before the 20-21 school year begins. Parents will need to provide a copy of their child’s immunization record showing proof that the meningococcal vaccine has been completed prior to the first day of school.  This is a 2-dose immunization; the 1st does was required in the 7th grade in Wake County schools.  These rising seniors were the first class for this new requirement.
