ATTENTION…CURRENT 5th GRADERS…all 6th graders for the 2014-15 school year MUST have a school physical with updated immunizations completed BEFORE the first day of school.   Any student not in compliance by the first day of school will not be allowed to attend until they become compliant.  Make your appointment early as the Dr’s office schedules fill up early.  You may bring your physical and updated immunizations with you to the Residency Verification Days in August.
