New Immunization Requirements for Students Entering Grade 7 for 2021-2022

All students entering 7th grade are required to have two vaccinations -  a Tdap (Tetanus diphtheria and pertussis) and a Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine  - by the first day of 7th grade.  Many students will have annual physicals and also have to report their latest Tetanus vaccination for Outdoor Education during 6th grade.  Therefore, we highly recommend taking your child to the pediatrician during 6th grade to ensure they have the proper vaccinations and getting an updated vaccination record from the doctor so that they can turn it in directly to the Health Room.

Please contact Brienne Merritt, RN, BSN, the School Nurse with any questions at 240-406-1571.   


All grades experience various county and state-wide tests. This is a list of the tests and the dates they will be given during the school year.
