Pennsylvania School Health Law requires all students in eleventh grade to submit proof of a physical exam. Notification is sent home in the spring of the students' sophomore year. Permission forms to have a physical exam done by our school doctor are available in the Health Office.
New immunization requirements as of 8/2017 per PA Department of Health:
- 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine, the second given at age 16 or entry into 12th grade. The second dose will be required for entry into 12th grade this August or a written religious, philosophical, or medical exemption. If the initial dose was given at age 16 or older, only one dose is required.
- 4 doses of Polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at lease 6 months after previous dose given) or a written religious, philosophical or medical exemption. A 4th dose is not necessary if the 3rd dose was administered at age 4 years or older and at least 6 months after the previous dose.
- As in the past, all students entering 7th grade will need to provide proof of one meningococcal conjugate vaccine and current Tdap vaccine for entry or a written religious, philosophical, or medical exemption.
