Attention 6th grade Parents/Guardians:

The New Year has begun and we would like to share information about required immunizations for next school year.  We are alerting our parents now so you will have ample time to plan for these requirements if needed.  The Ohio Department of Health requires two immunizations for 7th grade students.  Students are required to have an additional Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) booster and Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine  before entry to 7th grade.  We will need documentation of this from the Physician’s Office or Immunization Clinic where they received it.  Please send this to the Berry office or bring into the nursing office before the end of the school year.

If your student has not had these immunizations, please make arrangements for them to receive these as soon as possible.  Please send this documentation to the Berry office this school year, or if completed over the summer, the Junior High School office.

When school resumes in August, students who do not have these required immunizations may attend school for a period of 14 days pending completion.  After 14 days, Ohio law mandates that your child be excluded from school until such record is provided.  It is not our desire that any student be removed from school.  However, for your child’s safety and the well-being of all students, it is necessary that we have your full cooperation in this matter.  

Please contact your family physician or the Warren County Health Department at 695-1468 to arrange for your child to receive these required immunizations.   If you have any questions concerning your child’s immunizations, please contact the school nurse at Lebanon Junior High School at 934-5309 or the Health Department at 695-1468.  Please disregard this letter if this issue has already been taken care of.


Thank you,

Brian Dalton
