It’s hard to believe that this year is already coming to an end! I have enjoyed getting to know your students and look forward to next year. There are a few housekeeping issues that you need to be aware of:
NC Immunization Law requires rising 7th graders to have a Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine for 7th grade entry. Please go ahead and schedule an immunization appointment for your child if you have not done so already. This must be received by the 30th day of the 2019-2020 school year or your child will be suspended from school. You may call your pediatrician or the Alamance County Health Department for a vaccine appointment. The Alamance County Health Department is located at 319 N Graham-Hopedale Rd., Burlington, NC and can be contacted at 336-227-0101. Do NOT wait until the last minute as appointments fill up quickly in the month of August. If your child has received the vaccines, please send in a copy of the vaccine record. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school nurse!
If your student took medication during school hours, please plan to pick up any medication that may be remaining at the end of the school year. The medication will be available for you to pick up for two (2) weeks after the last day of school. After that time the school will dispose of any remaining medication.
I hope you all have a fun & safe summer!
