GRADE 9 IMMUNIZATIONS - Grade 9 parents: watch for immunization consent packages that were sent home Wednesday. Please discuss the information in the consent package and involve your child in the decision to provide consent to immunization. This should be used as an opportunity for adolescents to start making decisions about their own health. Immunizations will occur on February  18th, 2020..  Although a child may be immunized with the consent of a parent/guardian or representative, a grade 9 student can make an informed decision regarding immunization regardless of parental consent or refusal.
