    Immunization and HAR

    The purpose of this communication is to inform you of school registration requirements. In addition to online registration, all parents/guardians are required to submit the following two documents pertaining to school health for each child being registered:

    1. An original and up-to-date State of Alabama Certificate of Immunization (i.e. Blue Card): IMPORTANT TO NOTE: All students who are 11 years old and will be entering 6th grade as well as any student older than 11 years old, who will be entering grade 7-12 and who has not already received a TDap vaccine, must receive the TDap vaccine to enroll in/register for school. For additional immunization requirements, please see the ACS Pupil Progression Plan or contact your child's school nurse.

    2. State of Alabama Board of Education Health Assessment Record (HAR):Parents/guardians must complete and submit a HAR for each child every school year as part of the registration process. A separate form is required for each child, regardless of whether or not a health condition exists. Parents/guardians may obtain the HAR - on the school webpage or from their child's school. ***Parents/guardians will be contacted if these documents have not been submitted by the first day of the school year.
