All students entering grades 7 and 12 will be required to be vaccinated against the meningococcal disease. One dose of meningococcal vaccine is required prior to entry into the 7th grade. A second dose of meningococcal vaccine is required prior to entry into the 12th grade. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday, with at least 8 weeks between the first and second dose. If the first dose of meningococcal was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required. If a pupil is in the 12th grade and is 15 years of age or younger, only one dose is required.

A written verification, in the form of a note, fax or email, is required from your family physician or the Hamilton County Health Department. Members of the senior class who have not provided proper verification of a second dose of meningococcal vaccine may be excluded from school and subject to disciplinary measures for non-attendance. Thank you for your proactive approach in addressing this issue. Seniors are required to show written proof of the vaccination no later than September 5, 2023. Failure to do so may result in being excluded from all classes and all school activities.

Our hope is to keep our students and parents informed well in advanced of areas of concern. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Hamilton County Health Department (513-946-7882) or Harrison High School (513-367-4169). All documentation and forms may be emailed to the school nurse at or faxed to the high school at 513-367-7251.

Any medication that you have had in the Nurse’s Office for your student this year should be picked up no later than the end of the last day of school (Weds 5/31).  We will dispose of any medication left in the Nurse’s Office left after the end of school on Wednesday 5/31.  Please note that we will require a new set of paperwork to keep medicine in the Nurse’s Office at the start of each school year as students are not permitted to carry medication of any type on their person at school.
