  • Important Information for Current 6th Graders Regarding Tdap and Meningococcal Vaccine:


    North Carolina law mandates that all children entering the 7th grade are required to have a Tdap and meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Tdap covers your child for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, also known as whooping cough. Meningococcal vaccine is given to help prevent meningitis. Please bring in proof from your health care provider with the date the vaccines were given. 

    For complete details and explanations, please review the website https://immunize.nc.gov/schools/ncruleslaws.htm for NC general statutes 130A-157.

    Please contact the school nurse if there are any questions.

    Going Green in the Greenhouse

    We have a fully functional greenhouse that we want to integrate into our science classes and greenhouse club to teach, hands on, botany and horticulture. The campaign would include start up costs of resources to begin planting. We also need cleaning and set up supplies to be able to make this project a reality for our students.
