7th & 8th graders

Parents of seventh and eighth grade students are reminded that their children are required by State law to have the Tdap vaccination or submit an objector’s statement within 30 calendar days from the first day of school. Parents must provide the school with documentation that their children have been immunized, or have a religious exemption or a medical exemption, by Friday, September 12.

If documentation is not provided in Greenville County Schools by September 12, the student will not be allowed to return to school until he or she is vaccinated or submits an objector’s form (religious exemption or medical exemption).

The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough).
