This week, the Physical Education Department will be running Floor Hockey games in the gym. Students will be required to wear athletic shoes, eye protection, and shin guards in order to participate in the games. We will have goggles and shin guards available for use but we  understand if students would feel more comfortable with their own items.

Tdap Notice for Parents of 5th Graders

Virginia Law requires that all students entering sixth grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of 11, although it can be given as early as seven years of age.

In order for your child to begin 6th grade you will need to submit a copy of your child’s immunization record showing the Tdap vaccine before the first day of school.  It is recommended that all paperwork is submitted to the school office by June 8, 2018.

A Tdap Notice was sent home with all 5th Grade students in the progress report envelope on Tuesday, February 6th.

Do you have a rising Kindergartner?

A 'Survey of Preschool Children' is going home in the January 30th Tuesday Take-Home envelope. If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 30, 2018, then he or she is eligible for kindergarten. In this case, please complete the survey and return it to your child's school.
