State requires two doses of meningitis vaccination
before grade 12
Last year, New York state began requiring students
entering grades 7 and 12 to be vaccinated against meningococcal disease.
For the 2017-18 school year, students entering eighth grade who did not
receive their first dose on or before the start of seventh grade must
also meet the requirement.
Does your child need to be vaccinated before the
start of the 2017-18 school year to meet this requirement? The answer
depends on more than just your child’s age and grade level.

Prescription drug alert
Many young people believe it is safe to take
medicine out of the cabinet even if it was not prescribed
for them. And many of today's prescriptions are written for pain
medications that can be deadly, addictive and in some cases lead to
the use of very dangerous illegal drugs like heroin.
Education is the key. Parents: speak to your teens
about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs and why they should not
use other persons' medications.
