Incoming 6th Grade Families
We are honored that your child has confirmed acceptance to ICE and we welcome you into the ICE community.
You will receive all the required NYC DOE paperwork during the first days of school.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DOE HAS MANDATED THAT ALL CHILDREN ENTERING 6, 7, OR 8th GRADE WHO ARE 11 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER, MUST RECEIVE THE TETANUS BOOSTER "TDAP" VACCINE PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. If a student has received a tetanus booster vaccine (Td, DT, or DTaP) within the last two years, the student’s vaccine may be deferred until two years have elapsed. However, you must submit proof of immunization to the school. Please remember that failure to have your child properly immunized may lead to exclusion from school. Ten year old students who are entering 6th grade will not be required to receive a Tdap vaccine and will not be excluded from school, but they MUST be immunized by the time they turn 11 years old and the records supplied to the school within 10 days of the 11th Birthday.
