New Student Immunization Requirements for 2014-2015

The Georgia Department of Public Health has released new immunization requirements for Georgia students.  In addition to the immunizations currently required, all students born on or after January 1, 2002 who are entering 7th grade, and new entrants to Georgia schools in grades 8-12 will be required to have the Tdap (Tetnus, Diptheria and Pertussis) and meningococcal conjugate vaccines before entering school for the 2014-2015 school year. 

For more information, call Cobb & Douglas Public Health at 770-514-2349 or visit www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.org.

School Registration Immunization Information


Student Afternoon Checkouts
No student checkouts or last-minute transportation changes will be permitted after 3:45 P.M.  This is an extremely busy time of day in our front office and our classrooms.  Last-minute transportation changes pose problems with communication to our students and create too-frequent interruptions in our classrooms.  Safety is our highest priority, and to ensure students are dismissed safely in the way parents intend, we cannot allow changes or early check-outs between 3:45 and 4:15 PM.  Please make arrangements for afternoons before your student leaves home each morning, and contact our office early in the day should a change become necessary.   Please help us preserve instructional time by adhering to this timeline.  

Blackboard Connect Parent Info
Durham uses a phone out and email out system.  Please use the attached document to change your account settings.  You will need your child's Cobb County ID number.
