  1. CURRENT 5th GRADE PARENTS – PLEASE READ:  

Vaccination Opportunity:  The Hancock County Health Department will be hosting a vaccination clinic at GCHS on February 12th. The clinic will run from 2:30pm-7pm. Your student must be accompanied by an adult to receive vaccines during this clinic. For the 2018-2019 school year, students in the sixth grade are required to have two Hepatitis A, a meningococcal, and a Tdap vaccine in order to be compliant with state requirements. Hepatitis A vaccines must be given six months apart. The HCHD generally offers open clinics prior to the start of school, but you can also call and schedule an appointment or use your regular healthcare provider to receive vaccines. Due to the six month period that must pass between Hepatitis A vaccines, you should start NOW to ensure your student will not be excluded from attendance next school year. This is a walk-in clinic, no appointment necessary!

  1. ISTEP Preview:  The opportunity for your child to show us what he/she has learned will be here before we know it.  The Indiana Department of Education has developed a website where parents can view sample ISTEP+ items.  We would encourage you to take a look at this site and discuss the importance of the exam with your child.
