Attention ALL Incoming 7th Graders

Medical red crossIt is a requirement for all students to provide proof of the Tdap immunization before the start of 7th grade. One reminder was mailed early in the summer, and a second reminder has been mailed to any students who have not provided this proof to the school office. All students, even those who might select eSchool or Polk Virtual, are required to provide this proof in order to begin the 7th grade. Please provide the immunization record to the office as soon as possible. They will not be given access to schedules until they are up to date.

Face Coverings

The District has clarified the requirements for wearing masks at school: "Face coverings are recommended for students in PK.. Students in K through twelfth grade will be required to wear face coverings."

Face coverings may include: face shields, cloth coverings, medical disposable masks, fishing gaiters which all provide protection over the nose and mouth. The district will also provide masks for students who do not have their own face covering.

We do have a limited number of face masks in DSA colors and different sizes thanks to the work of Jennifer Yount! They are available first-come-first-served during the uniform sales. Sizes: Yellow, extra small, fits most k-2; Purple, Small, fits most grade 3-5; Black, Small, fits small/average middle schoolers; Turquoise, Medium, fits the larger end of average Middle Schoolers; Grey, Large. (There are only a few of these.)
