All students entering Pre-school and kindergarten for the first time are required to have up to date immunizations and physicals. Students who are going from Pre-school to kindergarten do not need a new physical but do need up to date immunizations for kindergarten.
7th graders must have documentation of a Tdap booster prior to starting school (given after age 10)
The following are the only exemptions allowed for immunizations:
1) Medical exemption completed by a health care provider
2) Religious exemption completed by parent (form available on the GCSSD website)
All immunizations must be documented on the official State of Tennessee immunization form.
