Parents of Sixth Grade Students

 Current 6th grade students need two additional immunizations in order to start 7th grade.

These are the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis booster) and the MCV4 (meningitis vaccination).
 
If your child has already received these immunizations, please send the updated immunization record to the health room AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
 
If your child has not received these immunizations, please make arrangements for him/her to receive them.
 
Proof of immunization must be received by the first day of 7th grade in order for your child to remain in school.
We are seeing an increase in the number of students who are calling/texting their parents to pick them up because they feel sick.

In order for a student to be signed out sick the student must come to the health room prior to any parent contact being made.

The nurse will assess the student and call the parent if the student is too ill to remain in school.

If the student requests that the nurse call a parent, this will be done. The student and parent together may make the decision whether the student will remain in school or be picked up and signed out sick.

If the decision to pick up a student is made without any prior student contact with the nurse the parent may sign out the student unexcused.
