8th grade VaccinationsAll incoming 8th grade students are required by the State of Missouri to receive a Tdap booster (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and a meningitis vaccine. Your student can receive the vaccine at your physician's office or at the Boone County Health Department. These vaccinations can be given any time after age 10. Be sure to provide written proof of vaccination to the school nurse. Thank you for sending written proof of vaccination to the nurse any time your student gets a new shot! 8th grade starts with summer school. If your current 7th grader is attending summer school, please obtain the mandatory vaccines before June 1. Your student will not receive their schedule in August 2018 unless they have written proof of the vaccinations on file.A Headache is a real Pain!Middle school students can carry a one day supply of over the counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Ibuprofen in a bottle with the manufacturers label, as well as cough drops.
