- All 9thgrade students are required to have a physical on record that is less than 365 days old.
- All 11th grade students are required to have a physical on record that is less than 365 days old.
- All students entering 12th grade are required to provide proof of 1 dose of the Meningococcal Vaccine.
ATTENDANCE WILL BE DENIED FOR ANY STUDENT WHOSE IMMUNIZATIONS ARE NOT UP TO DATE.
Medications given in school require a doctor's order and signed parent's permission.
As part of the required school health examination a student's weight and height is measured. These numbers are used to figure out their body mass index (BMI). Our school is periodically selected to report a summary. No names and no information about individual students are sent. However, you may choose to have your child's information excluded from this survey report. If you do not wish to have your child's weight status included as part of this summary please call or e-mail me.
