ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS
TDAP CLINIC COMING SOON!
The BCMS, in conjunction with the Baker County Health Dept., will be offering free Tdap vaccines to all 6th grade students on Wednesday, April 10th.
Permission forms will be coming home with progress reports on February 8th and must be returned in order for your child to receive this required vaccine.
You may also have your child vaccinated at their Primary Care Physician's office, the health department, Minute Clinic, or the Baker Rural Health Clinic.
THIS VACCINE IS REQUIRED FOR YOUR CHILD TO ATTEND 7TH GRADE FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR
PARENTS: Please remember that just because your child visits the school nurse does NOT mean their abscence will be excused.
ATTENTION HOMESCHOOL PARENTS: If your child will be at a tryout or participating on a team, the nurse must have a copy of their current physical and a valid DH680 vaccination record.
