Safety Patrol

Rising Star Safety Patrol began their stations last week. We have some 6th grade student leaders stationed outside and throughout the school during arrival and dismissal to support our students as they arrive and leave school. These students can be identified by their neon vests. We all greatly appreciate their leadership! Safety Patrol students get dropped off at the front of the school at 7:45 a.m. Thank you Mrs. Maleta for directing our safety patrol.

Nurse Notes

If your child is feeling sick please keep them home and call the school at 913-993-4500. This will help us keep everyone safe and well.

Immunizations

Kansas state law now requires two doses of the Hep A vaccine in order to attend school. I will be contacting parents this month regarding this if their child is not up to date.



All immunization requirements are due on Thursday, October 14th to avoid being excluded from school. I am missing several boosters for students. They may have been completed but I haven’t received a copy of them. If you are unsure if you have turned in all of your students' immunizations, please call me at 913-993-4510 or email me at sarapurcell@smsd.org.


To avoid exclusion from school, all well child physicals are due by November 12th, 2021. I am missing several physicals. If you received your vaccines at your doctor’s office, usually a physical is done when the 5 year boosters are given. I need a copy of the physical and the best way to obtain the information is to call your doctor and request it. They will not release it to me without a HIPAA release signed by the parent and sometimes they still will not release it to me without the parent requesting it. Thank you so much for helping me obtain all the required documents of your child.


The following link will direct you to the state of Kansas and all required vaccinations for school. https://www.kdheks.gov/immunize/schoolInfo.htm


Please let me know if you need any additional resources or help to obtain these records.
