|4th and 5th Grade Fitness Testing will begin|
Our Fit Falcon 4th and 5th graders will be pre tested on their 4 fitness tests this year, beginning September/October. We hope to have the students complete all 4 fitness pre-tests before the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please have your student come dressed for success to participate in fitness activities. We recommend your student wear shorts, sneakers and a t-shirt. It is highly recommended that if your student has Asthma- requiring an inhaler, that you have one kept at school in the nurses office, should your child ever need it.
Fight the Bite! Prevent Zika this Summer
Outbreaks of Zika virus infection have occurred in many parts of the world, and travel-related cases have been diagnosed in Virginia. Because the mosquitoes that can transmit the virus are found in the U.S., including Virginia, the Prince William Health District is spreading the word about how to protect yourself and your family.
Prevention: To fight Zika:
Rising 6th Grade TdAp Requirement
The Tdap booster vaccine is required for sixth grade students before the start of school in September 2016. Please give written documentation of this immunization to your school nurse once your child receives the vaccine. If your child has not received this immunization before the end of school in June, you will need to give the documentation to the middle school staff. Meeting this requirement as soon as possible will help your child have a smooth transition to middle school.
Unfortunately, no sixth grade student will receive their home room assignment until the Middle school has written verification of the Tdap immunization. These students will be excluded from school in September until immunization requirement is satisfied. Even if your student is only 10 yrs old in September, they will need to get the 10 yr old vaccine.
Please contact Mrs. Peoples, our school nurse, if you have any questions.
