VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS ENTERING 7th GRADE!!
There are two state requirements to be completed prior to entering 7th grade per the Nebraska state laws. Please note that if these two requirements are not met, the students WILL NOT be able to participate in the schedule pick up process in early August until these requirements have been completed.
1. The Nebraska state law requires ALL 7th grade students to have a physical exam or physical exam waiver signed by a guardian PRIOR TO beginning 7th grade. Students are REQUIRED to have this paperwork completed and turned into the school health office.
Parents/Guardians, please note that if your child is playing sports NEXT YEAR that the sports physical must be completed AFTER the date of May 1, 2021. The NSAA athletic bylaws require the physical to be completed after May 1, 2021. If a student has a physical is dated earlier than May 1, 2021, they will be asked to obtain a new physical in order to participate in sports. If you have any questions concerning this please contact the nurse's office.
2. IMMUNIZATIONS-7th graders are required to have a TDAP booster. Please bring the current immunization records with you to schedule pick up. If the student has not received the TDAP booster, the student will not be able to get a schedule until the state requirements have been met.
WE MUST HAVE THE ABOVE ITEMS COMPLETED IN ORDER FOR THE STUDENT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SCHEDULE PICKUP PROCES
Please call the health office if you have any questions concerning immunization requirements or physical requirements for the next year.
