May 30th will be an early release day at MSA. We will be dismissing all students at 1:30.

An important note, backpacks are not allowed on the last day of school. Please do not send your child to school with a backpack on May 30th. Backpacks brought to school will be confiscated in the morning and returned after school if a student brings a backpack to school.

Every year students outgrow uniforms, or move up to high school uniforms. We have a great need at MSA for used uniforms. Please consider donating uniforms you don't need any longer to the school so we can help families in need.

Whether you outgrew your uniform shirts or bottoms, or you have graduated or moved from Middle School to High School, we appreciate any uniforms that are donated to the school. Your generosity assists others greatly.

All 6th Grade Students must get more shots before 7th Grade.

The State of Florida requires proof of immunization for all students entering 7th grade each year. This proof must be on the official State of Florida Immunization Form (DH680... the Blue Card) which is obtained from your doctor's office or the Health Department. The following immunizations must be documented on this form:

* Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) - This is the update shot that you need for 7th Grade.

* Hepatitis B vaccine series

* Varicella vaccine or the year of disease

* Two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella)

Please see your doctor or the Health Department for more information and to assure that your child has met these requirements. This documentation must be submitted to the school before the first day of school next year (August 13). Students will not be allowed to come to school until these shot requirements are met. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
