Scheduled 2 hour Delay Dates:
Dear Parents/Guardians of 2020-21 Grade 12 students,
All students entering 12th grade must receive a dose of the meningococcal vaccine (MCV4, serogroups A, C, W, and Y) before the 14th day of the 2020-21 school year, as required by the Ohio law.
- The meningococcal vaccine was a new requirement for 12th graders starting in 2016. The bacteria that causes the meningitis infection can spread when people have close contact with someone else’s saliva, like through kissing or coughing. Teens and young adults are at increased risk for meningococcal disease and it can become very serious. The meningococcal vaccine is the best way to protect teens from getting meningococcal disease.
Some 12th graders may have already received one or two doses of this vaccine, so to determine if your child still needs a dose I have included the criteria. If your child received the first dose on or after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required. If the student has already received two doses of the vaccine the series is complete and record of this needs to be turned into the HS office. Lastly, if your child received one dose before his/her 16th birthday a second dose is required by the 14th day of the start 2020-2021 school year.
The High School office must receive proof of these immunizations prior to the 14th day of the 2020-21 school year, or the student will not be able to attend school until we receive a copy of the required immunizations. This also includes 2020-21 12th grade students who will be attending Four County Career Center.
These vaccines are available through the Defiance and Williams County Health Departments. Call your local health department for current hours.
Please note that some local health departments no longer receive vaccine supply for those covered by private insurance. The Ohio Department of Health only sends a limited supply of vaccines that are designated for children covered by Medicaid or those without insurance. Please call ahead to inquiry about coverage and benefits.
All forms and updated emergency contact information should be completed prior to our first day of school. Please verify that all forms have been completed. Due to several necessary changes, a few forms were added or updated. If you entered information earlier this summer, you will have a few new ones to complete.
