School Nurse

TDAP vaccine time for rising 6th graders:  A notice will go out Friday, February 10th regarding this requirement.  If you have not already done so, please schedule ASAP with your family doctor or health department so there are no delays for your child receiving teacher assignments next year.  Send record of this vaccination to school to the attention of the school nurse.  If your child has already received this vaccine and you are not sure if the school has a record of it, just call and ask to speak to me all school days between 8:30 AM and 1:30 PM.
