  • Wednesday, August 19 - Orientation & Back-To-School Night  (6:00 pm - 8:00 pm)
  • Monday, August 24 - First Day of Classes at WCHS

Meningococcal Vaccine

​IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS ENTERING 7TH GRADE IN THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR.

Students who have not received these vaccinations will be given written notice on Feb 20th, 2018.

We will be offering a school based clinic (this spring) for students who returned the permission forms.

Please make sure your child has these vaccinations completed in order for your child to be able to start school August 2018.

Requirements:
Students entering 7th grade (if born after September 15, 2004) – 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine received on or after age of 10 – a booster dose will be needed at age 16. 7th grade-Tdap vaccination-1 dose before entering 7th grade.

Meningitis is a very serious disease. Approximately 10 – 15% of people with meningitis die even with appropriate treatment. Of those who recover, up to 20% suffer from serious after effects such as permanent hearing loss, limb loss or brain damage. Meningococcal vaccines are very safe and 85-100% effective at preventing infection. The meningococcal vaccine requirement will help keep students, friends, families and communities safe.
 

By law, if a 7th grader is not fully immunized for meningitis, and 7th grade Tdap, he or she could be kept out of school and all school-related activities like sports as early as day 1 of school.

Any girl interested in softball pitching or catching, there will be open gyms on Sundays from 6:45pm-7:30pm in the old high school gym.  They will begin on Sunday, January 7 and will be on every Sunday through April.  If you are interested in pitching please bring someone to catch for you for the first two weeks.  You will enter through the weight room doors.  If you have any questions, contact Jess Howard at the high school.
