All children entering the seventh grade are required by the Tennessee Department of Health to have the tetanus-diptheria-pertussis (Tdap) booster. More information about required immunizations can be found here.
Your child will not be able to enter seventh grade if he or she does not have proof of the required immunizations by the first day of school.
Immunizations must be documented on the new TN Certification of Immunization and Box E must be checked.
Have the immunization certificate to the school nurse by May 23, 2018. If the immunization certificate is not returned by August 20, 2018, your child will be unable to enter the seventh grade.
If you have any questions, please call the school nurse, Lisa Jenkins, at 865-882-1727.
