Nurse's Corner

Attention 6th Grade Parents:

Over the next several weeks, Nurse Thornton will be going through shot records and if any immunization is found to be missing, this letter will be mailed home.

Please note that your student will not be able to pick up their fall schedule without an updated shot record on file and your student will not be allowed to attend school without an updated shot record on file.
