Virginia School Entrance Health Form

This health form must be completed for all NEW students. St. Michael’s Episcopal School requires that ALL enrolled students be currently vaccinated as prescribed by the Commonwealth of Virginia without regard to religious exemption.

State Vaccine Requirements for Rising 7th Graders

HPV, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis), and Meningococcal are required vaccines for children between 11 and 12 years of age in Virginia. This means children receive these vaccines going into the 7th grade. As a parent or guardian, you have the right to decide if your child receives the HPV vaccine. Please discuss this with your healthcare provider.
Later this summer, seventh grade families will need to upload updated immunizations to Magnus Health in PowerSchool.

Athletic Participation Form (for Grades 4-8)

If your children in rising grades 4-8 are playing any sports at St M, an athletic participation form needs to be completed by a family physician this summer and downloaded for completion and then uploaded via the student’s Magnus Health account in PowerSchool.

2023-24 Major Dates Calendar -UPDATED as of April 21, 2023
Please note that St M may make some adjustments to the last week of school in June 2024. More to follow.
