And all potential 7th grade students are mandated to have both the TDAP and MCV vaccines prior to the start of school in the fall.
Parents of 5th graders
Attention all current 5th grade students and parents: Please remember that you are required to have a medical history and physical form completed before the start of 6th grade in the Fall!

If you are still in need of these vaccines please have your parents schedule an appointment for you with your doctor or at your local health clinic over the summer to have this completed.

Security and Visitors
Students may not enter the building prior to 8:00 am, as there is NO supervision for children before 8:00 am.
Safety for our children and staff is a crucial factor. Adults must have identification to enter the building. ALL VISITORS MUST STOP AT THE FRONT DESK UPON ENTERING TO SIGN IN AND THEN PROCEED TO THE MAIN OFFICE.
For safety reasons, parents will NOT be able to escort their child to the classroom. When a student comes in late, the child will be sent directly to the classroom unless a staff member is able to escort the child.
Parent(s)/Guardian(s), and community partners may volunteer in classrooms other than their child(ren), upon state and federal background clearances to include a current child abuse, and criminal and FBI clearance.
