Metro School students prepare to go back to school, get vaccinations

Posted: Updated:

There are four days left until students go to back to school in Metro Nashville.

Parents have had the opportunity to register their kids over the past week. Saturday was the last day.

But school officials know that some people didn't register before Saturday, so they still will allow parents to register their children during the first week of the school year.

The cost of registering late is greater for high school students because the later they register the harder it is to get them into the classes they need to stay on track to graduate.

Students in Metro also need to get their vaccinations before school starts.

Seventh-graders in particular will need a booster for protestus, diphtheria and tetanus. They will also need to receive the chicken pox vaccine or prove a history of the disease.

Each vaccination has to be on the official Tennessee certificate of immunization.

Students can receive those vaccinations at the Metro Health Department or at a local community health clinic.
