A Message from the High School Nurse
Minimize

High school provides many challenges for your child. Please  talk to your child to see how s/he is coping. Communication is a powerful tool for parents and school staff to support the children as they deal with the demands of high school.

 

In an effort to support parental decisions, if you decide to send your child to school, I will encourage him/her to remain in school - unless there are observable or measureable signs of illness.

 

The incidence of Pertussis (whooping cough) has increased markedly in the past 30 years. There have been 74 cases in York County since January 2010 - predominantly in the 5-18 year age group. Talk to your child's doctor about their level of immunity. If their last pertussis vaccine was 6 or more years ago, they could be at risk for the disease. Parents are also at risk for pertussis - talk to your own doctor about getting a Tdap vaccine!

Attention: Parents of 11th grade students

 

All 11th grade students are required by the state to have a current Physical Exam (PE) form on file with their school nurse (10th grade Physical Exam reports are acceptable).  

 Please return your child’s Physical Exam report (or copy of their sports physical) to the school nurse by the first day of school of their junior year.  Physical Exam forms are available in the HS Office or on the district website. 

 

In Addition:

Please be aware that The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires all students entering 12th grade to have a second meningococcal vaccination.

 

 Proof of this immunization must be submitted by all incoming seniors before the start of school their senior year.

 

This immunization is typically given at the 16 year old physical.  Please contact your child's doctor to see if they already received the shot or to schedule an appointment for them to receive the shot it.

Please provide the school with a copy of your child’s immunization record from the doctor’s office confirming they have had this immunization before the end of school their junior year if possible.

 
Please contact the nurse with any questions at AKitner@yssd.org.
