Parents/Guardians of 7th and 12th Grade Students
This is a reminder to parents and guardians of students entering the 7th and 12th grade levels. These grades have immunization requirements. 7th graders must receive both Tdap and the meningococcal vaccine. 12th graders must receive the meningococcal vaccine. An updated copy of the immunization record is needed in the high school office. These vaccines are available at most physician offices, local pharmacies, and health departments. The Scioto County Health Department is located at 602 7th Street Portsmouth, OH. They have walk in immunization clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am-11 am. If these days and times do not work for you call for an appointment at 740-355-8358. Thank you for your cooperation.
If a student requires prescription medication to be taken during the school day, a physician's request form must be completed by the doctor and on file in the nurse's office. Medicine will not be dispensed if this form is not completed.
