Virgil Grissom Summer Library Hours

posted Jun 9, 2015, 12:04 PM by Amy Lamfers

Summer for students this year is 2 weeks longer, which makes reading and learning over the summer even more important.  When the library is open, students will have the opportunity to return and check out library books, use the computer for learning activities, read with a buddy, play a game with a friend, and many more activities.  Parents do not need to stay with their child, but we ask that parents arrive promptly to pick them up.   Hope to see you this summer!

From The Nurse

posted May 6, 2015, 11:16 AM by Michelle Connor

For 6th grade parents:

Please be on the lookout for health paperwork for the junior high school.  If your student wants to participate in any extra curricular activities, they will need completed
physical and concussion forms on file.  With the later start date, some activities will start the first day of school and students will not be allowed to participate without
these forms.  Also, if your student has not had a Tdap (tetanus-diptheria-pertussis) booster, they will be required to have one before starting 7th grade. 
Doctors offices get filled up in the summer with student physicals, so the earlier you schedule one for your child, the better!

If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 563-285-3502 or Jane Wilson (junior high school nurse) at 563-285-3410.
