Good evening. This is Paula Husar, principal of Palmerton Area Senior High School. If you are receiving this message, it means that your son or daughter does not yet have the meningitis MCV vaccine required to start their final year of high school. This second dose or booster dose is required by the start of the school year or your child will not be permitted to attend. This is in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Health codes. Again, this is not optional. The state requires it. Please note that this is the meningitis vaccine, not the COVID vaccine.
If you have questions, please contact our summer nurse – Mrs. Michelle Bisbing. She can be reached tomorrow as well as Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of next week from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Her telephone number is 610 826-4914 ext. 5003. After that, you can contact her by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. (She will be responding to e-mail sporadically – as time permits.) Please note that our school year begins on Monday, August 30. Unfortunately, it is a priority that this is taken care of for your children to start on time and receive an up-to-date class schedule. This is not an option. Again, please note that this is the meningitis vaccine, not the COVID vaccine.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation
