New Temporary Clinic

Check out the new temporary location for the clinic!  I'm now in P101.  The new, permanent location will be ready in March.  I love all the room in the portable building!

Upcoming Events

Living for Zachary Heart Screening on Saturday, March 2 from 9 AM to 2 PM

Mark Your Calendars!  The Red Balloon Run and Ride is May 11, 2019!

Come walk or ride your bike with students, staff and families!  Dress for comfort and wear your PURPLE!  Make it as fun as you'd like!  We've seen tutu's and face paint!  Last year it was cancelled which is likely why they moved it to May this year instead of April.

Current Sixth Grade Families-DTaP and Meningitis (MCV4) Before End of School Year!

The DPT is required prior to entry to grade 7.   Most sixth graders had their last DPT vaccine at about age 4 or 5 and are due for a booster anyway.  The MCV4 vaccine must also be given prior to starting 7th grade but NOT before 11 years old.  If the MCV4 was given before age 11 years, they will have to have it again before the start of 7th grade.  These are state requirements and will apply no matter what middle school your child attends.  If your student does get these vaccines before the end of the 6th grade year, please provide a copy of the updated immunization record to the school nurse when it becomes available.  The sooner you provide an updated immunization record to the school, the sooner you can put that requirement behind you.  

Please understand: your student will not be given a schedule or be permitted to start grade 7 until the vaccine requirements are met.

 That's all for now!!
