Grade 9 Immunization Consent Forms – return by December 16th

Request to return Grade 9 Immunization Consent Forms

Recently immunization consent packages for grade 9 students were sent home from the school. If you have not already done so, please review the information with your child as an opportunity for them to start making decisions about their own health. Please complete the consent form and return it to the school in a sealed envelope by Monday December 16, 2019.

Although a child may be immunized with the consent of a parent/guardian or representative, a grade 9 student can make an informed decision regarding immunization regardless of parental consent or refusal. This is referred to as “mature minor consent.”

For more information:

Immunizations will be provided at the school for grade 9 students on February 6, 2020.
