  • We are gearing up for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year!

    Incoming 7th grade students for the 2022-2023 school year are required to have a Meningococcal Conjugate and Tdap vaccines OR an up to date, valid exemption on file. Letters have been emailed to parents of students needing these vaccines. ALL students are required to maintain immunization compliance or valid exemptions throughout the school year. Please reach out if you have any questions.

    Middle school students are NOT allowed to self-carry most medications (including over the counter) at school. This is to ensure safety of all students while on campus and prevent possible over/under-dosing, sharing, and/or misuse of medications. If your student needs medications during the school day, they must be registered with the nurse in the front office. Medication forms are linked below.

    Please reach out if you have any questions!
