  • Immunization Information for Current 5th Grade Parents

    It's not too early to be thinking about immunizations required for 6th Grade.  The State of Indiana requires Tetanus and Pertussis (TDaP).  **Must be TDaP and not TD or DTaP and the Meningitis Vaccine (MCV4) must be prior to the first day of 6th Grade.  We highly recommend that you get your appointment for your child to receive these required immunizations during their 5th Grade year especially after they turn age 11.  An immunization record with the required 6th grade vaccines is due on the first day of school for the 2016-2017 school year, July 27, 2016.  If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse, Mrs. McGarry at 317-544-5900 or email nsmcgarry@avon-schools.org.

  • Immunization Records Due!

    Sixth grade immunizations are due now! The last week of August letters were sent home with students that need their meningitis vaccine (Menactra or MCV4) and their Tdap (Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis) vaccine. Soon our school nurse will be calling you for the date of your students' appointment to get these vaccinations. If your student has already received these important vaccines, please call your provider and ask them to fax the appropriate paperwork to our school nurse at 544-5902. Fifth graders (on or after age 10) a second immunization of Varicella (Chicken Pox) is required. Please call the school nurse at 544-5900 if you have any questions regarding immunizations.
