Attention 7th Grade Parents – Required immunizations!

Attention 7th Grade Parents – Required immunizations!

 

North Carolina General Statutes (G.S. 130A-155) requires immunizations for every child attending public school in this state. Every parent, guardian or person in loco parentis is responsible for ensuring that their child(ren) receive required immunizations.

 

Tdap and Meningococcal immunizations are required for entry into 7th grade.

 

Families are given 30 calendar days from the first day of school to comply with immunization(s) and requirements.

  • There will not be any extension to the immunization deadline.
  • The Immunization Law states immunizations are required for every child present in North Carolina
  • Virtual/Online Learning does NOT exempt these students from the immunization requirements
  • The required immunizations are due BY THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.
  • The first day attendance is taken is considered the first day of school. i.e. the student does not need to be physically present.

 

Immunization records can be faxed to 919.670.4368, emailed to Jocelyn Rossi at jjoyner-rossi@wcpss.net or put in the immunization records box in the main lobby.
