SCHOOL NEWS
Immunizations, Residency, Parent Connect
Dear Parents/Guardians, I'm starting my reminders early for 6th grade parents. All students entering the 7th grade must provide proof of receiving the tdap and MCV4 immunizations. You can fax (443-757-5280) or email me (jcalvert@mycsp.org) the updated records. When you send me the proof if immunizations, please follow up to make sure that I received them. Remember, your 7th grader must show proof before they can begin school next year. If you move to a new home, you must complete a new registration form and provide updated information. Please contact me for a list of the required documents that you will need. Only one Parent Connect account is permitted per household. The email address used to set up your account is the one that your information will be sent to. You will need to inform me if you want to change it. Once you receive your username and password, please keep this information in a safe place. Thanks, June (Registrar)
