In Accordance with Tecumseh Local School Guidelines:
No child, at the time of initial entry or at the beginning of each school year, shall be permitted to remain in school for more than fourteen (14) school days unless the child presents written evidence that s/he has been immunized or is "in the process of being immunized". "In the process of being immunized" means the student has been immunized against mumps, rubeola, rubella, and chicken pox, and if the student has not been immunized against polio, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and hepatitis B, the student has received at least the first dose of the immunization sequence, and presents written evidence to the principal or Superintendent of each subsequent dose required to obtain immunization at the intervals prescribed by the Director of Health.
Any student previously admitted under auspices of "in the process of being immunized" who has not complied with the prescribed immunization intervals shall be excluded from school on the fifteenth (15th) school day of the following school year. The excluded student shall be readmitted upon showing evidence to the principal or Superintendent of progress on the prescribed immunization interval schedule.
NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS TO ENTER GRADE 12 BEGINNING IN THE FALL OF 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR
Ohio Revised code section 3313.67 and 3313.671 calls for students entering the 12th grade to obtain a Meningococcal (Menactra) Vaccine. If a Menactra Vaccine was obtained before the age of 16, a second Menactra dose is required. Therefore, your current eleventh grader will need to show proof of having received required dose(s) of Meningococcal (Menactra, MCV4) before they return to school in August.
Immunizations are also available at the Clark County Combined Health Department. You may call CCHD at (937) 390-5600 for the Immunization Clinic hours.
If your 11th grader gets immunizations while at a doctor appointment please provide documentation to the school clinic. Many doctors administer the Meningitis immunization during routine check ups.
Please refer to the Ohio Revised Code 3313.67 and 3313.671 for School Attendance and the ODH Director’s Journal Entry (available at www.odh.ohio.gov, Immunization: Required Vaccines for Childcare and School).
