Diploma Order Form
Your child will be receiving and important email today regarding his/her diploma and also some important end of the year information. Each senior will be asked to type his/her name as it should appear on the diploma and also read at commencement. We have asked the students to submit their full legal names- no shortened names or nicknames. We have also asked them to discuss this with you before submitting so that there are no misunderstandings.
The deadline to submit the form is Friday, December 20. We will, of course, be reminding those who procrastinate but ask your help in getting this information submitted.
Thanks for your help.

COMMUNITY HEALTH CONSENTS
These documents must be updated each school year. They are provided electronically as a part of the online registration process for both existing students and new enrollments and should be completed prior to the start of the school year. Students must have a consent to treat signed by a parent or guardian to be seen in the school nurse clinic. All students will be treated in the case of an emergency.
NEW Immunization Requirements for 2020-2021
Attached are the new Immunization Requirements for the 2020-2021 School Year. There has been a change. All students K-12 will now need 2 doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine with at least 6 months between the doses. We wanted to make you aware of these changes. Seniors still are required to have the booster dose (#2 MCV4 or Menactra) meningitis vaccine as well. Please check your child’s shot record and contact your provider to schedule appointments. A good time to receive updated vaccinations is over breaks so school is not missed.
To find a clinic that is administering immunizations, please contact the Marion County Health Department at 317-221-5700 to schedule an appointment or to find out about their same day services. Community Clinic at Walgreens may also have some immunizations available. To find a Community Clinic at Walgreens near you, please call 1-855-626-7761.
Lastly, attached is information regarding the flu, covering your cough, and handwashing. By simply covering your cough and adhering to good hand hygiene, this minimizes the spreading of these germs.
