Health Services

The health and wellbeing of our students and their families matters to us; students learn more, teachers instruct more effectively, and we all work smarter when we feel good.

Please help us to be prepared in an emergency situation by informing us of any allergies to medications, foods, or insects your child has.

immunIzation information

For students in grades 7–11: Two doses of Hepatitis A are now required for your child before the start of their senior year. While many students have had this vaccine, there are still several that have not. If you do not already have it, we encourage you to start the two dose series of Hepatitis A to ensure it’s completed by the time your child is a senior. If you would like a copy of your child's immunization record, please contact your school nurse.

Parents of current juniors: Before the start of their senior year, your child is required to have two doses of Hepatitis A and two doses of meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine on file before the start of the 2018/2019 school year. We recommend both HPV and Men B, but we do not require them at this time. Below are two immunization clinics located in Decatur County. You may also see your primary care doctor or pediatrician.

If you do not wish to have your child vaccinated, religious and medical exemption forms are located in the clinic. Any questions, please call or email your child's school nurse.

      Additional Information

      Before entering 12th grade, your child will need some additional vaccines. Required, per state law, are two doses of Hepatitis A and two doses of Meningitis (MCV4). Optional vaccines at this time are Meningitis B and HPV. To help provide a convenience to parents, we have partnered with Decatur County Memorial Hospital to complete these required vaccines for your child at school during school hours. We mailed letters home Thursday, March 1 with additional information. If this is something you would like for your child, please fill out the two required forms and have them return to school by Friday, March 9. Right now, we do not have a date/time set, but will most likely be the last week of April. Continue checking your email and newsletter for more information! If you do not wish for your child to receive vaccines, religious and medical exemption forms are in the clinic. Feel free to email Mrs. McCamment with any questions or call her at (812) 591.3330.
