We all like to smell nice...perfume, cologne, body spray, scented lotions.
But for some staff and students, these scents can cause a life threatening emergency.
Please be mindful of what you spray on before and while you are at school.
It's not to late to vaccinate, get your flu shot today!
Please notifiy Nurse Cheryl at 259-4930 if your child has tested positive for the flu.
ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS
Your child will be required to have a Tdap vaccination to enter 7th grade. They will not be allowed to attend class on the first day of school for the 2019-20 school year without this vaccination. Vaccines are available at the Baker County Health Department free of charge.
DON'T DELAY, GET VACCINATED TODAY!!
PARENTS: Please remember that just because your child visits the school nurse does NOT mean their abscence will be excused.
ATTENTION HOMESCHOOL PARENTS: If your child will be at a tryout or participating on a team, the nurse must have a copy of their current physical and a valid DH680 vaccination record.
