Tdap Booster Deadline is Oct. 6

Parents/guardians of 7th-12th grade students have until Oct. 6 to provide their child’s school with the state law required Tdap booster documentation: proof of Tdap vaccine, proof of an upcoming doctor’s appointment for the vaccine, or a signed a Tdap Personal Belief Statement.

Failure to do so will result in the student being excluded from school and daycare beginning Friday, Oct. 7 until the requirement is met. Students will also be excluded from all school-related activities, including athletics, band and clubs.

For a list of free Tdap Vaccine clinics, check the district website at or visit Vaccines can also be obtained from your personal healthcare provider and at several local pharmacies.
