    7th Grade Shots

    Under Florida State and Escambia County regulations, all students must receive the TDAP immunization prior to beginning 7th grade. You can contact your child's doctor, or many local pharmacies and clinics in Pensacola offer this immunization. You may contact the Escambia County Health Department at 850-595-6500 for more information or visit this website.

    Once your child has received their TDAP immunization, please ensure you receive an updated copy of the State of Florida Form 680. Please send in a copy of this form to BBMS as soon as possible.

    KidGuard Insurance

    Student Accident Insurance Coverage is available on a voluntary basis for all students in Escambia County Public Schools on an "At-School" or "24-hr Basis," with the ability to purchase both enhanced plans with greater benefits PLUS In-Hospital Sickness and Dental coverage plans. This valuable coverage protects families from the unexpected medical costs associated with accidental injuries, especially those occurring while at school. ECPS does not cover an accidental injury just because it happens at school; this accident plan would cover most out-of-pocket costs even after the primary insurance plan pays. 

    More information can be found the following handouts, which will be sent home the first week of school. These will also be available on our Student & Family Resources page all year.
