7th Grade Immunization Requirements

Students entering 7th - 12th grade are required by the State of Maryland to have a Meningitis vaccine (MCV4) and a Tdap vaccine by the first day of school.  Please contact your child’s health care provider to obtain documentation of these vaccines or to schedule an appointment to receive the required above vaccines if still needed.  Failure to provide proof of updated immunizations by the first day of school could result in your child being excluded from school.   Immunization records can be scanned & emailed or a cell phone photo of record can be emailed directly to health room staff at email addresses below.  Please contact the school nurse directly if you have any further questions.  Thank you!

Cell Phone Policy as it Relates to Sick Students

Students who become ill while at school must report to the health room to be evaluated. Please discuss with your student that he/she should not use his/her cell phone to call/text parents for pick-up during the school day.  Students who feel ill should go to the health room and parents or guardians will be contacted, as needed, once students are evaluated by the health room staff.   Thank you for your attention to this matter and for working with us to keep your child healthy and safe.

Accident and Medical Insurance

Accident Insurance

The school system does not carry medical insurance for accidents that occur at school, including non-sport related injuries, such as trips and falls, physical education injuries, and recess/playground injuries. Thus, parents are encouraged to enroll students in the accident insurance program offered through HCPSS.
