If they are attending summer school, they will not be allowed to attend without written proof of vaccination. Your student must have written proof of vaccination on file by August 10th in order to receive their school schedule for the 2021-22 school year.Please submit written proof of vaccination to the school nurse by fax or email.Water BottleYour middle school student should carry a water bottle every day. It is important to remember to wash the water bottles often to keep your student safe.
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.
