T-dap Immunization Requirement for current 6th graders to enter 7th grade
Beginning with the 2011-12 school year, incoming 7th grade students are required to show proof of the T-dap Booster prior to schedule pick-up. Parents of current 6th grade students, please present documentation of your child’s T-dap (Tee-dap) vaccine to our school's nurse as soon as the vaccine is administered. See the following for information related to immunization requirements:
If your child needs medication during school hours, required paperwork will need to be completed. A copy of the Broken Arrow medication policy can be obtained through the nurse’s office. “As needed” medications, such as inhalers also require Parent/Physician permission forms. Please remember that no student should be self-administering medication at school without prior approval through the nurse’s office. Any medication sent to school must be brought to the nurse’s office upon the student’s arrival to school. It must be in the original container accompanied by a note from the parent/guardian.
Students with fever of 100 degrees or higher, vomiting, or diarrhea may not return to school until they are fever/symptom free for 24 hours.
Growth & Development Teaching and Film Information
Each year students will visit with the school nurse regarding ‘growth and development’ issues. Sixth graders are taught the basics of growth and development. Seventh grade classes contain information regarding choosing sexual abstinence. Seventh graders will also receive AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) prevention education in accordance with Oklahoma law. Eighth grade classes contain information regarding prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. As a parent/guardian, you have the opportunity to request that your child not be included in the presentation, by phone call or written request. The film that is shown to the students is available for parents to preview should they have questions as to whether or not they want to allow their child to view the film. If you would like to preview the film please contact our school nurse and she will arrange a private viewing for you.
