Health Reminders 2017-2018 school year

Just a few reminders for the 2017-18 school year:

  1. All returning students should complete a “returning student health history” form.  Click here for the form. It can also be found on our website under “forms”.  Please complete this form even if you register online.

  2. All 7th graders are required to have both a meningococcal vaccine and a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) booster before school starts this fall.  

  3. All 9th graders should have a dental screening performed.  This is an Iowa requirement for all students entering kindergarten and 9th grade.  We have attached the dental form for your dentist or hygienist to complete. Click here for the form. It can also be found on our website under “forms”.  If your child recently had an exam, you can take this form into your dentist and/or hygienist to sign.

  4. All 12th graders are required to have a meningococcal vaccine before school starts this fall.

  5. All students with medication should pick up their medication from the nurse’s office on (or before) the last day of school.  If you do not want the medication to come home with your child, please contact us to make other arrangements.  All medication left at the school will be properly disposed of.

Community Service Project – Last Day of School

On the last day of school, the entire high school is going to pick up trash around Gilbert in honor of Del Doolittle.

Then we’re going to walk/run as many miles as we can around the track to raise money for Blank Children’s Hospital’s Child Life program.
