All incoming 8th grade students are required by Missouri law to get a Tdap and Meningitis vaccine before they can begin the school year. If your student will attend summer school, they must have written proof of vaccination before June 1, 2020. They will not be given their schedule in August if vaccines are not current. Send the shot record to the school nurse.
PLEASE notify the school if your contact information changes. When your child is sick or injured, it is very stressful for them if we can't contact a parent or guardian to take them home. A phone call to the guidance office or our attendance secretary is all you need to do to update a phone number.
A Headache can really Hurt!!Remember that your middle school student can carry a one day supply of an over the counter pain reliever in a container labeled by the manufacturer. This includes Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cold medication, and cough drops. Many students come to the health room complaining of a headache. We are NOT allowed to give any medication to your student that is not prescribed by a physician in writing.The health room staff are happy to assist your Jefferson Middle School student at any time. Please be sure you update contact information with the school. If a student needs to be sent home because they are ill, we need to be able to contact a parent or guardian quickly.Health Room Hours:7 AM-3:30 PM Monday-FridayBetty Cramer, RN, BSN , School NurseShawna Volkart, Health Secretary
