Tdap is a booster vaccine that protects your child from three dangerous diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (also called pertussis). Parents are reminded that rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or they must submit an objector's statement to their child's school for students to attend school prior to the first day of school.
Parents must provide their child's school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption or a medical exemption. Parents are encouraged to submit documentation as soon as possible. If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school.
State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination beginning with the 2013-14 school year. If parents have any questions, please contact our school nurse at 864-452-0307.

Parents, please be reminded that our school policy regarding early dismissal asks that parents not seek an early dismissal after 2:45. Early dismissals at any time are disruptive to the school day and are particularly problematic in the last 30 min. of our instructional day.
