WASHINGTON TRIP

Please refer to the tab What's Happening at GFMS and grade 8 for Washington trip information.


New York State requires that all students who have turned 11 years old by the time they enter 7th grade receive their Tdap immunization.  Many doctors will give the vaccination between 10 and 11 years old to meet this mandate. The memo which was sent to 5th grade parents was intended to give you more time to get this vaccination for your child. 

When you have your child immunized with the Tdap vaccine, send this to the nurses' office for our records. If you have any questions, you may contact the nurses' office at ext 514/516. 

Please refer to the letter attached for further information.
