Florida law requires that students entering 7th grade be current on their TDAP vaccinations. These will be offered at our schools May 9-12. Please click the link below for information on TDAP shot clinics through our schools.
During the week of May 2, 2016 – May 6, 2016 all elementary schools in Clay County will be registering kindergarten students for the 2016-2017 school year. To enter kindergarten, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2016, verified by a registered birth certificate (Florida Statute 1003.21.) Clay County policy has no provision for early admission to kindergarten.
Florida’s Compulsory Immunization Law requires that, prior to entry, attendance or transfer; all children comply with the state adopted immunization schedule (Florida Statute 1003.22). For the 2016-2017 school year, DH Form 680 (or Religious Exemption DH Form 681) is the only acceptable immunization certificate for admittance to a public or non-public school, grades Pre-K through 12. The Form 680 can be obtained from your doctor or the Clay County Health Department. The Form 681 can be obtained from the Clay County Health Department.
A child may be certified as fully immunized if he/she has completed, prior to entry, the following vaccinations:
· 4 or 5 doses of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis (DtaP) vaccine
· 2 or 3 doses of Hepatitis B (Hep B) vaccine—requires 6 months to complete
· 3, 4 or 5 doses of Polio vaccine *
· 2 doses of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine
· 2 doses of varicella vaccine †
* If fourth dose of vaccine is administered prior to fourth birthday, a fifth dose of polio vaccine is required for kindergarten entry only.
† Varicella vaccine is not required if varicella disease is documented by health care provider
A school physical examination performed within one year prior to the first day of enrollment is also a required requirement.
In addition to health documentation and proof of date of birth, you will need multiple proofs of residency. Some items required for proof of residency (3 - 4 required) are driver’s license/Florida i.d. with current address, current utility bills, mortgage or rental agreement, and insurance, credit card or bank statements. A complete list of registration requirements is available on the Parent page of our District website at: http://www.oneclay.net/parents.html
Registration is not considered complete without ALL required documents.
Parents may register their children at any time during the week of May 2, 2016 – May 6, 2016; this early registration will enable all involved to do a better job in planning for the next school year. We encourage parents to take advantage of this early registration opportunity.
Florida law requires all students have a Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis) immunization before entering 7th grade. If you do not have a doctor or healthcare provider, the Florida Department of Health in Clay County offers FREE immunizations to students.
