Requirement for students entering 7th grade next school year

Published: April 12, 2017 12:00 AM

Students entering the 7th grade for the 2017-2018 school year are required to have the TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) booster.

A new vaccination, Meningococcal (MCV4) is also now required for students entering the 7th grade. This vaccine protects against meningococcal diseases (serogroups A, C, W, and Y).

These immunizations will help boost protection against these diseases.

Please make arrangements to have these required vaccinations completed as soon as possible and then forward a copy of the documentation to Newcomerstown Middle School.

As of September 15, 2017, students whose records are incomplete will be excluded from school until the required documentation is provided.
