LMS Grade 8 Immunization Reminder
Good afternoon 8th grade LMS parents.
If you have already provided updated immunization information to us for the coming school year, please disregard the following.
Immunization information/Grade 8
As a result of immunization changes required by the State of Missouri, students entering 8th grade for the 2016-2017 school year will now be required to have a meningitis immunization and a Tdap immunization prior to beginning school. Your child may have already had both of these immunizations. Please check with your child’s pediatrician to see if these have been completed and, if not, get an appointment scheduled.
Updated records from your pediatrician that reflect that your child has received these immunizations may be faxed to (314) 997-8736, mailed to the LMS School Nurse at 9701 Conway Road; St Louis, MO; 63124-1646, or dropped off in our office from 8 am to 3 pm. Information regarding the immunization requirements for 8th grade can be found at:
As of last week, we had not received updated immunization information for over two hundred incoming 8th grade students for 2016-17 (which is about two-thirds of that grade level class).
Please note that we are prohibited from allowing any 8th grade student to begin attending classes until the necessary immunization information is provided. As a result, 8th grade student schedules will be held until we receive that information from your child’s doctor. All other information in 8th grade student packets will be available, but not their class schedule.
Thank you for your help with this.
