Important Information for Grade 6 Families – Immunization Documentation

Dear Parent/Guardian:

I hope this  finds you enjoying the last couple of weeks of summer.  I am writing this to remind all incoming sixth grade families of the immunization requirements for students entering into 6th grade in September 2017.  The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has mandated that all students entering 6th grade must have the following immunizations: Tdap, a Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccine, and the meningococcal vaccine.

If your child has received these vaccines, please send in documentation from your physician.  If your child has not received these vaccines, please schedule an appointment with your child’s physician or the Butler Board of Health immediately.

Proof of immunization must be received by September 8, 2017.  Failure to comply with these regulations may result in exclusion from school.

Thank you for your cooperation in your child’s health.  Mrs. Lee, our school nurse, can be reached at slee@butlerboe.org with any questions.

See you on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

 

 

Respectfully,

James J. Manco
