Parents of 7th graders are reminded that students are required to have a TDAP booster and a dose of the Meningococcal vaccine in order to enter the 7th grade. Please make appointments with your doctor or with the Health Dept. early to avoid the beginning of year rush. Documentation of the vaccines must be provided to the office/nurse once completed. See attached information regarding the policy.
If your student is absent or needs to leave early, please send them with a note to Mrs. Spiceland in the main office. There are three (3) ways to report (you only need to use one):
All absences must be reported using this toll free number or online. Please continue to follow the absences with a note within 2 days of the student returning to school. When sending in absence notes for your student, you must give a reason so that we may determine if the absence is excusable. When out for a “family emergency”, “appointment”, or “with parent” there needs to be clarification. If no explanation is given, we have no choice but to make the absence unexcused. We are audited by the state, so clarifications are essential. The rules are for your protection as well as the schools if there is ever a question on why your child was not in school.
Arrivals / Departures:
Parents please remember that drop off and pick up for students is in the back (East side) of the building. The front is for busses only. Our students’ safety is our top priority – please DO NOT drop off or pick up your student in the front of the building where the busses are. Thank you!
