New 7th Grade Immunization Requirements

Click here for the requirements

We would highly recommend getting the immunizations or waivers early in the summer.  We have found that many will wait until just before school begins or shortly after and parents have a difficult time getting a timely appointment.

This is a required state law and we need to have your child’s immunizations up to date to attend school.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Peer Mediation

Peer Mediation is a conflict resolution program in which trained student mediators help peers resolve interpersonal conflicts. Peer Mediation is voluntary, confidential and proven to be one of the most effective approaches to solving student disputes. It is monitored by a counselor or social worker. Students needing peer mediation may sign up in the counseling office.
