  • IMMUNIZATIONS


    Students are required Missouri State Law to be current with immunizations for the school year 2023-2024.

    Immunizations may be obtained through your health care provider or through the Department of Health Clinics.  Students entering 12th grade must complete the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV) prior to the start of school in August.  Two doses of MCV are required unless the first dose was administered to a student who was 16 years of age or older, in which case only one dose is required.  More information can be found here.

    If your child receives any vaccinations, send a copy of the completed immunization form to the school nurse, Samia Das, c/o Parkway South High School, 801 Hanna Rd., Ballwin, MO 63021.  Please send immunization information before the first day of school. Immunization forms may also be sent by fax: (314) 415-9530 or by email sdas2@parkwayschools.net
