FROM Nurse Jimenez
To 6th grade parents,
Only 20 more students to reach our goal of 100% compliance!!! Thank you to everyone who has turned in your child's shot record. It is appreciated!
In order to comply with entry requirement for 7th Grade, students will be required to have the following immunizations:
Tdap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis)
Meningococcal (Must clearly indicate: MCV4, Menveo, Menactra)
I will be putting monthly reminders in your student’s backpack if I do not have documentation of the required immunizations. If you do not receive a reminder, your child is good to register for 7th grade. Please provide this documentation ASAP.
Students cannot start 7th grade without these immunizations. Tdap and meningococcal vaccine for all 6th graders going to 7th grade will be due by May 12, 2023. You may send your updated shot record to email@example.com.
Thank you for your attention on this matter.

The Character Trait for the month of March is Trustworthiness
Trustworthiness is being deserving of trust, showing dependability, and proving reliability.
Being trustworthy comes from both actions and words, by choosing to be truthful in all that you say and do. It is vital to emphasize the importance of trustworthiness to your children.
Demonstrate and help them understand that trust is important in all types of relationships and is gained over time.
