  • New vaccination requirements

    The vaccination requirements for all students in Pennsylvania have changed, and these changes could potentially affect all students. Students in grades K-12 now must have received four doses of polio vaccine, and in addition the fourth dose has to be administered on or after the 4th birthday and at least 6 months after the previous dose given. Please review these and other changes by reading this document from the PA Department of Health. If you have further questions, please consult your family healthcare provider.

    ALL AFFECTED STUDENTS MUST HAVE THESE NEW VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS COMPLETED WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE START OF SCHOOL OR THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND.

  • Supplemental Medical Insurance

     Neshaminy is offering parents and guardians the opportunity to purchase a low-cost primary excess group insurance plan for students to supplement their family medical insurance.  The district does not carry medical insurance on students, and student accident insurance can help you eliminate the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses, since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and may require a deductible or co-insurance. For more information and enrollment forms, click here.
