Notices are mailed to each student on or around their eleventh birthday AND at the end of Grade 5. If you have any questions when you receive our letter, please call us @ 201-646-7866 or your Pediatrician. THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BEGIN GRADE 6 WITHOUT THESE IMMUNIZATIONS.
