This year has certainly kept us on our toes, but we have made it to the Spring semester, and I'm looking forward to finishing out this year strong!
7th grade students for the 2022-2023 are required to have a Meningococcal Conjugate and Tdap vaccines OR an up to date, valid reason of conscience exemption on file. Letters have been emailed to parents of students needing these vaccines. Please reach out if you have any questions.
As a reminder, middle school students are NOT allowed to self-carry most medications at school. This is to ensure safety of all students while on campus and prevent possible over/under-dosing, sharing, and misuse of medications. If your student needs medications during the school day, they must be registered with me in the front office. Medication forms are linked below.
Please reach out if you have any questions!
