Forest Grove #SpartanNation Weekly Announcements

Transition to 7th Grade:  Thank you to all the families who came to the Junior High to learn about what it's like to be a 7th Grader!  If you would like to look at the presentation materials, please click here. To watch a recording of the meeting, click here.

7th Grade TDAP & Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement: To begin the first day of Junior High in August, the Iowa Dept. of Public Health requires all students to have the TDAP and meningococcal vaccines or a notarized exemption form on file. Don’t wait until the last minute when the doctor’s offices are busy. Make an appointment with your health care provider today to get these requirements met. Once these injections have been completed, please provide the date of immunization or a copy of the updated immunization certificate to either the elementary or junior high school nurse. Please contact your school nurse with questions.
