7th Grade Immunization Requirement

All students entering 7th grade must have received a Tdap booster on or after 10 years of age or have an exemption form on file before the first day of school. If you need an appointment with a provider, schedule it now; wait times can be lengthy. If your student needs a sports physical, your provider may be able to give the Tdap booster at the same time. Check with your local pharmacy as they may also be able to administer immunizations. Call your school office or school nurse with any questions.

How to Talk to a Child About Mental Health

It is important for young people to hear that anxiety, stress, and negative emotions are completely normal - particularly in times of crisis. They also need to hear that there is always HOPE. In fact, just one positive nurturing relationship with an adult can help kids fight the effects of trauma. Talk to us about concerns you have
- Your RMS counselors (Melissa Payfer A-L, Steven Lee M-Z)
