NURSE NEWS & INFORMATION:
Parent of Junior Student,
There are new state requirements for your student’s immunizations status when they start school on August 23rd. Effective January 11, 2017, the state law required a one-time dose of meningococcal vaccine received after the age of 16. Several students have a date on file that was given before the age of 16 so this does not meet our compliance for entry to school.
What does this mean for you? You will need to call your physician’s office to check on your status and make an appointment to get this done or attend a clinic where you can obtain this immunization. Per Iowa law, there is no exemption to this date or grace period so it needs to be done by August 23 so your child can attend school. If you wait to do this until August, you may not get into your clinic before this date due to an increase in requirements for several grade levels.
If you already have proof of this meningococcal immunization (after the age of 16), please bring it or fax it to East High School at (712)274-4670 and I will update my records. Thank you in advance for your assistance in assuring your child’s immunizations are up to date.
Nancy Treft, R.N.
School Nurse, East High School
Email: email@example.com or Phone: (712) 274-4007
Kindergarten & 9th Grade Students, according to Iowa law, all Iowa children enrolling for the first time in Kindergarten or 9th grade must have a dental screening on file. It’s required per Iowa law! According to this law: Screening must occur no earlier than 1 year before enrollment and no later than 4 months after enrollment. If you think you have already sent this form to school, please double check with your student to make sure that they have turned it into the nurse’s office. Screenings can be performed by dentists or dental hygienists. Here is a link to the dental form. http://www.siouxcityschools.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Certificate_of_Dental_Screening_9.13.12.pdf. Please have this form filled out by your dental provider and turned in to your high school.
STUDENT NEWS & INFORMATION:
The East High Thrift Shop is located downstairs in the AEC. There is clothing available if needed for any occasion. Did you forget your gym clothes? We can help! Can’t find a coat? We can help! Visit us through the big double doors located downstairs and remember all of the items are FREE! Mrs. Elder is glad to help.
Students that are in need of Food For Thought bags can head down to the AEC during 4th period to get the food on the last school day of the week. These bags are for home use, if opened at school students will no longer be allowed to receive one.
Students, as you may have noticed there are signs on the doors reminding you to not let anyone in the school. Due to recent events we would really like for visitors and students to ring the doorbell to get in the building. If we all follow this protocol we can monitor who is coming into our school at all times. Also, please do not remove these signs from the doors.
Students just a quick reminder that you must have your student ID on you at all times, especially during lunch. Students that do not have their ID will either need to purchase an ID or have a day pass on them. If you need to purchase a day pass or a student ID, please see Mrs. Franco before the start of second block. Day passes are $1.00 if you purchase them before the start of second block, students that do not come before the start of second block will now be charged $2.00 for a day pass. If you do not have money to purchase an ID or a day pass, please visit with an administrator in the lunch room and they will help you receive lunch. Students you will never be refused lunch, please just make sure that you are following the correct steps to get into the cafeteria area.
VAPES ARE ILLEGAL regardless of what is in them. Getting caught in possession with one is a violation of the student code and will result in school consequences, an athletic code violation (making you ineligible for athletics and activities), and a $50 ticket plus a mandatory court appearance from the police. YOUR AGE DOES NOT MATTER, it is a violation for all students. SOCIAL MEDIA PICTURES OF YOU VAPING CAN LEAD TO THESE SAME CONSEQUENCES.
This includes “Juuling”, Juul pods are not permitted on school grounds and the consequences are the same as any other tobacco products.
PARKING NOTICE: Just a reminder to students that there is to be no parking along or on any yellow curb, on a sidewalk, in front of any entrance, on the grass, in front of any gate leading to any part of the school grounds, in visitor parking or handicap parking, or where any cones have been set up, etc. The bottom line, students should be parking in actual parking spots and not making up their own parking spots. This is so O&M, contractors, delivery drivers, bus drivers and (if necessary) emergency personnel can easily access those parts of the building and grounds. Students that are parking incorrectly may not be warned going forward and take the risk of being towed. Also, if you are parking on the street please make sure that you are not parking in front any of East High’s neighbors driveways, mailboxes, etc.
