New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements

New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements Go Into Effect August 1, 2017

Beginning August 1, 2017, parents will have a significantly shorter time frame to provide proof of vaccination, due to changes in school immunization regulations by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Previously, families may have had up to 8 months to provide proof of immunization. The new regulations require families to provide proof of immunization on or before the first day of school or risk their child’s exclusion. The new regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of preventable diseases.

Change in Hillside Highlights Newsletter Delivery, Deadlines

Beginning in October 2016, the PTO Communications Committee shifted delivery of the Hillside Highlights newsletter to Sunday afternoons. The decision to change delivery from Wednesday to Sunday was made in hopes that the new schedule will better enable parents to plan for the upcoming week.

To accommodate this change, the deadline for submissions for items to be included in the upcoming week’s Highlights likewise shifts to Tuesdays at 5 p.m. To submit an item for inclusion in the newsletter, please complete this form.
