We are currently developing plans for the registration of children who will be entering Allegheny-Clarion Valley in August 2016.
To be eligible to attend Kindergarten, a student must be 5 years old before July 1, 2016 . To enter first grade, a student must be 6.
A child must have the following immunizations before he/she can enter school:
MEASLES-MUMPS-RUBELLA (MMR) – 2 shots with the first one on or after 12 months of age
DIPTHERIA-TETANUS (DT) – 4 shots with the 4 th or 5 th one on or after the 4 th birthday
POLIO (OPV/IPV) – 3 doses
HEPATITIS B (HBV) - 3 shots appropriately spaced (may take a total of 7 months to complete so the shots should be started by January 2016 and kept on schedule)
VARICELLA – 2 shots with the first one on or after 12 months of age or written date of chicken pox disease
If your child is eligible to enter school and does not have the necessary immunizations, please check with your family physician or the PA State Health Center to make arrangements to have these completed before the beginning of school.
