  • ATTENTION Guardians of in-coming 8th graders

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 3/15/2018

    The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services recently revised the Missouri School Immunization Requirements, specifically for current 7th and 11th graders.  Beginning with the 2016 – 2017 school year, the following immunizations will be required:

    • For all incoming 8th grade students, one Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccine will be required. In addition, one meningococcal vaccine (meningitis) will be required.
    • For all incoming 12th grade students, two doses of meningitis vaccine (MCV) will be required unless the first dose was administered at age 16 or over, in which case only one dose will be required. The first and second dose of this vaccine must be separated by 8 weeks.

    If your child has received a recent Tdap and/or meningitis vaccine, please send proof of the immunization to your school nurse or have the health care provider fax the immunization record to the school nurse at 214-3241.

    If your child has not received these vaccines, the immunizations need to be completed before they can attend 2018 summer school and /or receive schedules for the 2018-2019 school year in August. 

    Immunizations are available from:

    • Local health care providers
    • Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, 1005 W. Worley, no appointment necessary; M-F 8-4:30.

    For questions regarding your child’s vaccination history, please call your school nurse at 214-3246.

  • Not receiving parent emails?

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 10/9/2017

    Dr. Bishara sends out the parent newsletter via email/Parentlink each Friday and teachers routinely send group emails. If you are not receiving our emails, please check with guidance to be sure we have your correct email address on file. If you are still not receiving our emails, here are some tips that might help those come through to your account:

    Many of our emails are sent to large groups of students and or guardians. Your spam catcher could be kicking it out since it is going to so many addresses.  Here are some things the sender can do to help that:

    • Check your junk mail frequently to see if you have cps email in your junk folder and retrieve it from there.
    • Add “” as a safe domain.
    • Add teacher email addresses to your address book for those teachers who are sending mass emails.
    • Check to be sure you haven’t inadvertently added ‘CPS’ to your junk mail for blocking.
