IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR 7TH GRADE AND 12TH GRADE 2016-2017
The Ohio Department of Health has revised the immunization requirements for the 2016-2017 school year. All students entering the 7th grade are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine and one dose of Tdap ( Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) prior to the start of school.
In addition all students enering the 12th grade are required to have 2 doses of Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of school. However, if the student received their first dose after their 16th birthday then just one dose of Meningococcal is required.
You may obtain the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines from your health care provider or the Cuyahoga County Board of Health at 216-201-2041. Please consider the new guidelines when scheduling your child's next medical appointment.
In the near future, a Postural Screening Program will be conducted at school. The screening will identify children with curvature of the spine called scoliosis or other spinal problems. Scoliosis affects one in every twenty persons. Two or three of every hundred persons diagnosed with a postural problem will require active treatment. The purpose of this program is to recognize the problem at its earliest stages so that the need for treatment can be determined.
The procedure for the screening is a simple one in which the school nurse inspects the child’s posture as he/he stands and then bends forward. If a postural problem is suspected, the child will be rechecked at a second screening. If after the second screening a problem is identified the nurse will notify you.
If you have any questions about the screening please contact Jayne Brzozowski RN at 216-692-0086 ext 571334.
