IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR REGISTERING YOUR KINDERGARTEN CHILD FOR THE 2014-15 SCHOOL YEAR:
All Kindergarten and PreK registering for for the 2014-2015 school year must
have the required immunizations mentioned below. According to district policies, Peabody cannot register any student who does not have the required documentation by July 29th. Even if you have turned in the documentation to our office, parents or guardians will still need to bring in a copy of this information with them when they register.
The Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) has immunization requirements for children enrolling in child care and school. Children who start pre-school, pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 7th grade, or are a new student starting school in Tennessee for the first time, all will need a new official Tennessee Certificate of Immunization to provide to the school or child care provider when asked for an immunization certificate.
You can find out more about the vaccine requirements online at http://health.state.tn.us/CEDS/required.htm or you can contact your healthcare provider or local health department. For general information about vaccines, visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines.
