Just a friendly reminder that all incoming 6th grade students will need to provide documentation of receiving the Tdap vaccination by August 5, 2015.  Sixth graders may not begin school or receive a schedule until proof of this important immunization has been provided.  Your child can get the shot at your family doctor or at the Halifax County Health Department.  The Halifax County Health Department will schedule appointments any morning.  For an appointment please call 476-4863.
