What information do I need to bring?

  •  Please bring all medical records of the child’s immunizations to the registration.
  • Please provide the date of: 1. When your child had chicken pox OR 2. The date of the physician administered immunization for chicken pox.
    • Pennsylvania law requires that all children entering school for the first time must be immunized with the appropriate doses against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, hepatitis B, and chicken pox or have had the chicken pox.  This law was passed to protect school children from epidemics of serious and sometimes fatal diseases.
