Albia Jr. High/High School Weekly Announcements

The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017/18 school year.  This change requires that all students entering 7th and  12th grade have the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts this fall.  

Meningococcal disease is a life threatening illness that is caused by bacteria that infects the brain, blood, and spinal cord.  It easily spreads in crowded settings and typically affects older teens and young adults.  

All students entering 7th and  12th grade must have proof of having the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption.  Please bring copy to the high school office.

There will be no grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Karen McCarty RN ACSD School Nurse per email at karen.mccarty@albia.k12.ia.us or phone 641-932-2161 ext 180.

Looking ahead -

June - Drivers Ed will begin - If you are interested please make sure you have signed up via the link in your email or stop in at office.  Paperwork is going out to students now and will need to be returned by May 5th.
