As of September 1, 2008, New Jersey State requires that all students entering grade 6 born on or after January 1, 1997 should receive one dose of meningococcal containing vaccine and an acellular pertussis as part of the Tetanus toxiod. It is called Tdap. These are vaccines that are required for admittance to school in grade six. Notification is sent to every fifth grade parent starting in the spring before they enter grade six and reminder notices or phone calls are made until the end of September. If not in compliance with these immunization requirements, the student may be prevented from attending school per district policy. Please work with the health office to ensure that we do not need to resort to the exclusion of any students. Feel free to call the health office at 201-768-5700 Ext. 38612 with any questions or for a copy of the form.
