It is the goal of the Health Service Program to protect and improve the health of the students and staff in the school community. It is our goal for children to enter the classroom in optimal health and ready to learn. When children miss school due to illness and other factors, they are excluded from the learning process.

 

Hand Washing Guidelines

Can’t say it enough. Whether or not you get a flu shot, the best way to keep any disease from spreading is hand washing. Children should be taught to wash thoroughly:

 

Before eating or handling of food.

After using the bathroom.

After cleaning up their rooms or toys.

After touching any animal including family pets.

After coughing, sneezing or blowing their noses.

After being outside playing or working.

 

 

Immunization requirements 7th and 12th grade.

The new immunization requirement for 7th grade states that prior to entry into 7th grade all students should have 1 dose of Tdap (Adacel) and 1 dose Meningococcal Vaccine (MCV4).  Watch for the information sheet in the monthly newsletter. This dose is to be given during the Middle School years. The 7th Grade Immunization Requirement Form is below. 

Beginning in the 2016 - 2017 school year, all students entering the 12th grade are required to receive 2 doses of the Meningococcal Vaccine (MCV4) prior to entry into the 12th grade.  The second dose of the vaccine must be administered on or after the 16th birthday.  There must be at least an eight week time span between the first and second dose.  If the first dose of the vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.  The 12th Grade immunization Form is below.
