All incoming 8th-grade students are REQUIRED to have a Meningitis and Tdap immunization before they can attend summer school or begin 8th grade. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends a Tdap and Meningitis vaccines between ages 11 and 12. If your child has gotten immunizations within the last two years, chances are the nurse needs your new shot records. Most students received the state required immunizations during 5th or 6th grade. We need the updated record!
If current shot records are not on file at schedule pick up night of 8th grade, your child will not be given their schedule and will not be allowed to attend school.
Please have your doctor fax current shot records to (573) 214-3261 or email to Rhrdina@cpsk12.org.
If your child has not received their required shots, please schedule it ASAP.
Immunizations are available from the Boone County Health Department, 1005 W. Worley. No appointment is necessary; Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM.

As we move into the second semester of the 2018-19 school year, it is important to remind our students of school expectations. As the school year comes to a close in May, the following standards will be used to identify students who will be able to participate in non-academic “fun” events. All end of the year events are considered a celebration of the hard work and accomplishments of our students. The school’s administration and faculty are committed to help and support all students in meeting these expectations.
Attendance: 90% attendance rate (with possible exceptions) using the current semester data.
Discipline: No major office referrals. Chronic buddy and/or recovery room visits may also be considered.
Achievement: No failing grades on the most recent Individual Progress Report (IPR). There is an opportunity for students to bring their grade to passing prior to predetermined date of an event in order for the student to be eligible for an event.
This information will be shared with students on a regular basis. Their advisory teacher will be available to respond to student questions and support a student’s progress.
Since I started here it has felt like home. We have a dedicated staff that comes to school each day to make sure that Smithton is a positive environment where our students feel welcome and can work towards excellence. They have high expectations for all students and are tireless in their efforts to make sure they help our students meet those expectations. They are continually working to improve and push each other to help make Smithton great. Our students work everyday to be their best and constantly impress and inspire me.
