7th Grade Required Immunizations

New immunizations are required for all students entering 7th grade (in addition to current requirements).

7th grade immunizations must include the following:

* 1 Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis)

* 1 Meningococcal

Please review your student’s immunization status with your physician to ensure that your student will meet the new school immunization requirements. (Idaho state immunization requirements were approved in 2011 by state legislature). 

*Immunizations must be complete, and parents must provide the school record of new immunizations, in order for students to enter the 7th grade.  Please provide the school with documentation of required immunizations as soon as possible.  Students will not be allowed to complete registration for 7th grade without proof of these immunizations.  Now is a good time to schedule an appointment for the required 7th grade immunizations for your 6th grader. Please plan ahead as some doctor’s offices have a long waiting period. 

To avoid delay in the registration process for your student, immunizations need to be completed and proof must be turned in to the nurse before the end of your 6th graders school year. Your child with not be able to start their 7th grade school year if immunizations are not completed. If you have any questions, please contact Tracey Garner, school nurse, at 208-350-4060.
