8th grade Vaccinations
All incoming 8th grade students are required by the State of Missouri to receive a Tdap booster (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and a meningitis vaccine. Your student can receive the vaccine at your physician's office or at the Boone County Health Department. These vaccinations can be given any time after age 10. Be sure to provide written proof of vaccination to the school nurse.
A Headache is a real Pain!
Middle school students can carry a one day supply of over the counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Ibuprofen in a bottle with the manufacturers label, as well as cough drops. Students often come to the health room complaining of a headache. The school nurse can not give your student any medication that is not prescribed by a physician in writing.
PLEASE be sure that you update your contact information with the main office. The health room staff must be able to reach a parent or guardian quickly in case of a serious illness or injury.
