"Southwestern Students Succeed"




February 13, 2015



Dear Parent/Guardian,



This is to inform you that beginning next school year (Fall 2015) all students entering sixth and twelfth grades will be required to show proof of meningococcal conjugate vaccination (MCV). All sixth graders will be required to show proof of one dose received on or after 11years of age. All twelfth graders will need to show proof of receiving two doses unless the first dose was administered after 16 years of age. In this case, only one dose after 16 years of age is required.  This vaccination will prevent your student from a severe form of bacterial meningitis as well as other illnesses caused by this bacterium.


Some students have already received this vaccine since it has been recommended for various populations in the recent past. In this case, all you need to do is provide the. School  verification of receiving the meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Documentation accepted as complying with the requirement for students entering

6th and 12th grades include the following information:


•       A letter or note signed by your health care provider identifying the date the MCV was administered.

•       Printout from your provider's electronic medical record (EMR) that indicates the vaccine was administered.

•       Current Certificate of Health Examination form, specifying the date the MCV was administered.

In addition to your health care provider, many local health departments and pharmacies offer the vaccine. The Illinois Department  of Public Health recommends that parents get their adolescent vaccinated now  to avoid last minute rush during the summer. Other vaccines required for school include T-dap (one dose) and Varicella (2 doses or proof of having the disease). Human Papilloma Virus {HPV) is also a recommended vaccine. HPV vaccine prevents types of cervical cancers, head, and neck cancers, and others associated with the HPV disease. Students without adequate proof of vaccination will be subject to exclusion as described in the school code of Illinois. Southwestern School District excludes students without all health requirements on the first day of school.
