TDAP Requirement for 7th Grade

Immunization Clip Art
To enter 7th grade, it is mandated by law to have a Tdap (whooping cough) and two (2) Varicella (Chicken Pox) immunizations.  An immunization record showing the date your child received the vaccine, a signature, and a stamp of the doctor or clinic that provided the vaccine. 

If we do not receive this documentation before the first day of 7th grade, your child will not receive a class schedule to start the 7th grade.

Contact the Health Office for more information about immunization requirements.

8th Graders moving on to High School

Congratulations!  Your child will roll over to their home school of attendance.  If you wish for your child to attend a school that is not their home high school, then you will need to apply for a spot through the Open Enrollment process.


If your child is attending Peterson Middle School on an Inter-District transfer, you will need to obtain a new transfer for the upcoming school year from your home district and have it approved by the Director or Student Services to keep your child's place here at Peterson.

If your child is here on an Intra-District transfer, this is a one year agreement only and expires at the end of the school year.  You may apply for a spot for the following year through the Open Enrollment process which begins in January.  If your Open Enrollment request is not granted, your child will be sent back to your home school of attendance.
