Hello Parents and Guardians,
As our school year comes to a close in the health clinic at MSAD 53 we wanted to thank you for helping our students stay in school as much as possible throughout the pandemic. We also want to make sure you all are prepared for next school year. The new Maine law ( LD 798 ) starts in the fall of 2021 which requires all students to have up to date vaccinations in order to come to school.
Please access the information in full detail at:
LD 798 Implementation, Effective September 1, 2021
Calls and/or emails have gone out to give time to make appointments this summer if your child is not currently up to date. If you did not receive a phone call or an email, then your child should be up to date for this coming year according to our records. If you did receive a call and/or email please understand that it is vital that you make an appt. to get vaccinations up to date or get proof of medical exemption (form attached) BEFORE the start of school next year.
All 6th grade students going into 7th grade must have the required TDAP and MCV4 immunizations to be compliant with this law.
Also, if you have a student that is currently taking medication, please print the attached form and fill out with the information for next year so that we can keep our records up to date.
If your child has an IEP in place prior to this September, you will receive an additional email letting you know how this impacts your student and the steps you will need to take.
Thank you for your help in updating our records and maintaining compliance to keep our students safe and healthy! Have a great summer.
