It's the Rule: Shots Before School

Sixth Grade Immunization Project

Goal: All present sixth graders will have requested seventh grade immunizations and have documentation to HMS-7 School Nurse by May 24.

Why So Early? Each year in August there are about 150 students who do not have completed immunizations. The following is from state statute and district policy: “All students enrolling in any district school shall provide the building principal with proof of immunization of certain diseases or furnish documents to satisfy requirements.”

Why seventh grade?  An additional TDAP is required at this age level.

Schools on altered schedules next week

While USD 308 attempts to keep the different school schedules coordinated as much as possible, the final full week of February (Feb. 20 to 24) has elementary schools, the middle school and high school on different schedules.
