A new law requires that all 6th - 12th grade students provide proof of a Tdap vaccine. Many students have already had the vaccine but we do not have documentation of it. If you have not provided proof from your doctor that your child has had the Tdap vaccine, please contact your physician today. If your physician is unable to give the vaccine at this time, a note must be received from the doctor stating that they are unable to give it due to a shortage of the vaccine and an appointment date to receive it must be provided by the physician. 6th and 9th grade students and students new to District 186 must also provide a copy of a recent physical exam. All information must be received in the school office by October 15th or your child will be excluded from school until the information is received. Please call your school nurse for questions.
