First Day of School for 2017- 2018 School Year – Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

All students are expected to report to school on the first day, Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Students who have not attended the first two days of school will be dropped at the end of the third day of school. Students who are dropped will not be guaranteed a seat at the school and may have to be overloaded to other schools upon return. The only exceptions will be students who are absent due to illness. If a student is absent the first three days due to illness, parents or guardians must notify the school every day the student is absent. Seats will not be held for students on extended vacations or other optional activities, whether or not the school is notified.

Tdap for Students Entering 7th grade

All students entering the 7th grade in the 2017/2018 school year must receive a Tdap (Pertussis/ Whooping Cough) booster shot before entering school in August 2017. 

Proof of the vaccine must include: Student’s name, date of birth, vaccine name, date vaccine administered and name of the clinic, office, or doctor administering the vaccine.

We highly encourage you to have your student receive the TDAP vaccine now and to bring proof to your student’s current school office as soon as possible. This will prevent delaying registration and selection of courses for 7th grade.
