Building Safety
Over the past couple of weeks, Mr. Town has met with all MS students and reviewed safety procedures and expectations.  A safe and secure learning environment is our number one priority.  Please ask your student about what they have learned and have them discuss safety scenarios with you.

 

 

Yearly Physicals and Changes to Vaccine Requirements

A yearly physical is an important part of your child's health & well-being. Physicals are valid for 13 months and cover the sports physical requirements, as well as ensures you are informed of all vaccine requirements and recommendations. This is an excellent time to call your McFarland provider for a check up.   

New for the 2017-2018 school year is a state requirement to have 1 dose of the meningitis ACWY vaccine for incoming 7th graders, and 2 doses for incoming 12th graders. This vaccine is routinely encouraged at your child's 11 year and 16 year well visits, but if your child has not received theirs yet please contact your McFarland Clinic provider to schedule a visit. There is no grace period allowed after the start of school this fall.
