Pre-Kindergarten students must have their Health Form completed by their doctor and returned to the school office prior to attending school (August 15, 2022).
As a reminder, immunizations are required per Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 392.435 and 394.192 especially for students going into Pre-K, K and 7th grade. This will ensure children will continue to be protected against vaccine-preventable diseases.
Per Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 392.435 and 394.192, if a parent or legal guardian fails to provide their child’s immunization documentation, the student must be excluded from school and may not be admitted until the requirements for immunization have been met.
Let’s work together as an immunization community to ensure children are protected against vaccine-preventable disease and ready to return to school.

AS YOU PLAN LUNCHES, PLEASE CONSIDER...
There are many ways in which we communicate information and student progress.
Teachers will be using Google Classroom, which:
- Connects instructors with students.
- Makes it easy to create a class and invite learners.
- Helps instructors to distribute assignments.
- Facilitates communications between instructors and students.
- Allows teachers to create, review and mark assignments.
- Allows students to see assignments, documents and class materials in one place.
Google Classroom also encourages parent participation. Teachers can invite parents to the Google Classroom to share summaries of student work and to receive automated email summaries of student work and class announcements. Additional information will be provided on the first day of school.
