Requirements to enter 7th grade:
Before starting 7th grade, all students will need to provide proof that they have had the following two immunizations plus two examinations.
#1. A booster dose (after the age of 7 years) of TDaP, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough).
#2. The first dose of the meningococcal vaccine (MCV4). This is a two dose series; your child will receive the second dose before their senior year of high school.
#3. Physical Assessment also called Health Examination. This exam must be dated no earlier than one year prior to the first day of the 7th grade.
#4. Dental Examination. This exam must be by a licensed dentist and dated no earlier than one year prior to the first day of 7th grade.
If you fail to get your student properly immunized or examined by a physician and a dentist the state of West Virginia will not allow them to attend school. The state of West Virginia does not recognize ethical or religious exemptions. Please send the immunization record and the two examinations to the school nurse when completed.
