Spring is HERE! Allergy Season is Upon Us!
Some helpful tips...
Allergies can cause a multitude of symptoms including sniffling, sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, puffy eyes, post nasal drip, headaches and earaches, to name a few. Be sure to consult with your doctor about the best treatment options and limit your time outdoors on the days your allergen counts are high. You can check daily particulate counts, usually listed after most televised weather reports. Be sure to take prescribed medications as indicated to get your day started right!
Start Thinking About Sunscreen! As t-shirt weather approaches, don’t forget to be prepared with sunscreen. That first seasonal sunburn is the most damaging to the skin and can surprise you even on a cool spring day. Apply every few hours for the most effective coverage. In addition, wear hats and sunglasses to protect you from the sun’s rays.
New Immunization Schedules: Check with your health care provider to make sure you are properly immunized, especially rising 6th graders. All 7th graders are required to have a TDap booster (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) & Meningitis vaccine (MCV) prior to entering 7th grade.

The EOGs are rapidly approaching, and we need your help! We need a large number of proctors to assist in monitoring students while testing. Anyone over 18 years old can proctor. Testing dates are May 30 - June 7. Proctor training will be held on May 20 and May 22 at 8:15 am and 3:15 pm in the cafeteria. A proctor need only attend one of these short sessions. We will also train proctors the morning of the testing, if necessary. Click here to sign up.
