Kindergarten students need to complete their last diptheria, tetanus and pertussis booster after age 4 and before the start of school. Sixth grade students are required to have the diptheria, tetanus, pertussis booster prior to the first day of school. For more information, contact your child’s health care provider or your school nurse. These boosters are especially important as our state is in the middle of an outbreak of whooping cough. www.nsd.org and click the Health and Safety link.
