Watkins Middle School

 6th Grade Transition Website

We have a 6th grade transition website for our incoming 6th grade students and their parents. It has a variety of useful information for students and their parents as they prepare for the transition to middle school. It will permanently be located in the school counseling section of our WMS website, but you can also click here.


Vaccination laws require all 7th grade students to have the following vaccines:

7th Grade Immunization Information

One (1) dose of Tdap – a vaccine which protects against whooping cough

One (1) dose of Meningococcal (MCV4) – a vaccine which protects against bacterial meningitis. A second dose of this vaccine will be required at 12th grade.

As with other school immunization requirements, students who do not provide documentation of these immunizations are subject to exclusion from school. Parents must provide the school with the documentation by the first day of the school year.

Please contact your child’s health care provider to make the necessary appointment to obtain these vaccines. If your child has received these vaccines, please submit the documentation to the school as soon as possible. If your child does not have a doctor or if you are unable to obtain an appointment with your provider, the Licking County Health Department offers ongoing vaccination clinics with a variety of hours and locations. Please visit their website www.lickingcohealth.org or call at 740-349-6535 for more information regarding these clinics. You can also obtain these vaccines at local store-based clinics.
