    Dear Parents and Guardians of Incoming 6th Grade Students:

     

    The New Jersey Department of Health requires updated immunizations for students entering grade 6.   Incoming grade 6 students are REQUIRED to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccine) given no earlier than their tenth birthday AND one dose of a meningococcal vaccine, administered at age 11.  While not required, the HPV vaccine is also highly recommended at this age.

     

    See this link for information about Vaccines for Pre-Teens.

     

    Please make an appointment with your health care provider as soon as possible to have the required immunizations given prior to June 1, 2020. Students who turn 11 over the summer must provide proof of these immunizations before the beginning of the school year. Students who turn 11 after the start of the school year are required to receive these immunizations within 2 weeks of their birthday.

     
     
      Students missing the above required vaccines may not be admitted to school. Please provide signed documentation from your health care provider that the immunizations have been given, using the form below OR other official immunization record. 

     

    Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.  If you have any questions, please call me at 908.464.7100 Ext: 2615 or email: lkral@npsdnj.org.

     

                                                                                                    Sincerely,

                                                                                                    Lynn Kral, MPH, MS, RN, CSN-NJ
