Hello Turrentine Family,
I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe and happy summer. Just a few reminders for things that need to be done over the summer for students returning to Turrentine this fall.
All rising 7th graders are required to have 2 immunizations before they start 7th grade in the fall. They need a Tdap (pertussis and tetanus) and Meningococcal (Meningitis) vaccines. Please call your child’s primary care provider or the Alamance County Health Department to make an appointment to get these vaccines. They are required by the state and you will have 30 calendar days after the first day of school to get the vaccines or your child will be suspended from school until they are received.
Any student with chronic health conditions that need to have medications at school, you need to make an appointment with your child’s primary care provider and have a medication authorization form filled out and signed by the doctor and the parent. This includes any prescription or over the counter drugs needed at school. A new form is required each school year. You can get this form from your doctor or the front office during business hours.
Thank you, and again have a great summer!
