Effective July 1, 2011, a new immunization requirement takes effect for students attending grades 7th through 12th. The state is now requiring that students be immunized against pertussis, or whopping cough, as a condition to attend school. BY STATE LAW, STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND SCHOOL WITHOUT THIS IMMUNIZATION.
