    Reminder: 7th-Grade Required Vaccinations

    Reminder, students entering 7th grade, the state requires that parents and/or guardians provide documentation of a Tdap vaccine.  This documentation should be sent to the Buford office.  Even though we are starting the school with virtual education, this requirement still applies to all students. Need an Appointment? Your family can make an appointment with your health care provider or the Thomas Jefferson Health District (1138 Rose Hill Drive). Their number is 434-972-6269. In 2019, this requirement shifted from incoming 6th-graders to incoming 7th-graders. For details, you can find the Code of Virginia § 32.1-46.A.4.
