High Lites Week of Sept 8th

Good afternoon,

It was wonderful to see so many of you at last night’s Meet the Teacher Night.  Hopefully you had the opportunity to find out more about what is in store for your student this year. If you have additional questions for a teacher, please reach out to them.  We are looking forward to a wonderful school year.

Dr. Russell prepared a letter that was given out last night and I am attaching it to this email for those of you who were not able to attend. This letter contains information about the new state laws regarding Attendance Policies and Vaccinations. In addition, she writes about the online verification process, where you will be able to make corrections to some information regarding your student through HAC.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania changed the requirements for vaccinations for students. The law requires that students comply or risk exclusion from school.  Our nurses are calling the homes of those students who are not currently in compliance.  Please do not risk your son/daughter being excluded from school.  If you have questions please call the HS nurses or email Mrs. Morgitan  jmorgitan@pvsd.org


PA Law Regarding Vaccinations

Pennsylvania’s new School Vaccination Requirements take effect August, 2017. Students are required to comply with the PA immunization law or risk exclusion from school.

Grade 12 students (starting 2017 – 18) are required to receive:

 1 or 2 doses of Meningococcal Vaccine

·  If your student received their first dose of Meningococcal Vaccine at 11 – 15 years of age, then a second dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade.

·  If your student received their first dose of Meningococcal Vaccine at 16 years of age or older, that shall count as the 12th grade dose.

4 Doses of Polio Vaccine

A 4th dose is not necessary if the 3rd dose was administered at age 4 years or older and at least 6 months after the previous dose.
