Vaccination Opportunity:  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 Hancock County Health Department 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.

  1. Breakfast & 2 Hour Delays:  

In the event of a 2 hour delay this year, breakfast will not be served on these days.  This is due to the fact that upon student arrival our lunch staff will already be in the process of prepping lunch.

  1. Clinic Reminder:  

All medication, including over the counter, requires a request to administer document to be completed and brought to school by a parent or guardian.  The request to administer form as well as quite a bit of other health related information can be found at the following link:  Please note that cough drops are exempt from this policy.
