Please see message below concerning immunizations that are needed to start school.
Missouri state law requires students in 8th, 9th, and 12th grade be immunized against Meningitis. Freshman (9th grade) are required to have one dose of the Meningococcal vaccine. Seniors (12th grade) are required to have two doses. Failure to comply with state law and district rules will result in your child being excluded from school and all school activities until the requirements are met. If you have a doctor’s appointment for your child please notify the school nurse with the appointment date to prevent exclusion. Please provide a copy of the immunizations received right away to the school nurse.
The following are names of the meningococcal vaccine:
