Physicals and Vaccinations
Every student must have a physical examination upon entering the Parker School. The State of Massachusetts also requires that immunizations be up-to-date when entering school. For entering seventh graders these immunizations include:
- Three doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine
- One Tetanus booster (within the past 5 years)
- Two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine
- And a physician documented history of chickenpox or one dose of the varicella vaccine.
If your child plans to participate in the after-school sports program, they must have a current (within the past thirteen months of the start of the sport) physical examination completed by their health care provider on file in the School Nurse’s office. You also must complete and sign the Interscholastic Sports Permission section of the Student Emergency Health form each school year.
