Ohio Revised Code requires our students to provide written proof of immunizations. Prior to entering the 7th grade, students must have a Tdap booster (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis). You can obtain this booster from your own physician or at no cost through the Columbiana County Health Department (330-424-0272). We encourage our 6th grade students to have this taken care of immediately. After recieving the Tdap booster please forward a copy of your updated shot record to the school nurse.
Parents who for religious or philosophical reasons do not wish their child to have this vaccine can submit in writing a request for exemption signed by the parent or legal guardian. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please call Nurse Ash at the Middle School.
