Attention 8th Grade Families - There are two immunizations that are required for all 8th grade students. The Tdap and MCV. If your student has already completed these, please send verification to nurse Christy. I have included a picture from Missouri DHSS that explains all 23/24 Missouri School Immunization Requirements for further reference. More information can be found on their website. If you have any questions contact the office. Thank you.
We had a great first day. Just a reminder for anyone picking up or dropping off their student. Please do not enter the main circle drive entrance when picking up your student after school. Enter the driveway just north of the school by the cemetery. Follow that driveway behind the parking lot where the teachers park and it loops you back in front of the school. This allows for more space for cars to be in line without creating a backup on highway F. This path is marked in red on the attached picture. Also, if you are in the front of the line or when you are up next to be in the front of the line, please pull all the way past the door to the end of the concrete walkway. This allows us to release 6-7 students to their cars at once and allows for the pickup process to run as efficiently and quickly as possible. If you will be picking up your student on a regular basis, let us know and we will provide you a tag to hang on your mirror or put on your dash with your student's name on it. This allows Mr. Roderman, Mr. Prugh or Mrs. Adamson to quickly identify who you are and who you are here to pickup and we can have your student at the door and ready as you pull up. Thank you for your cooperation and for helping our pickup to be as safe as possible.

Mustang Family: tomorrow is the first day of school! We can't wait to start building dreams with our students. Please remember that parents who transport students to school will say goodbye and drop their students off at the front door. Parents are not allowed to accompany their children into the building. The forecast is calling for high temperatures, so outdoor activities may be limited for the health and safety of our Mustang Family. Our busses are not equipped with air conditioning, so afternoon bus routes may be very warm. We will be making water available for students riding home on the bus. We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning!
