School Health Notifications
                              Asthma Protocol
The State of Illinois Public Act 099-0843 requires schools to request parents of students with asthma to provide an Asthma Action Plan from the student's healthcare provider. This action plan will be kept on file with the school nurse. This Action Plan needs to be submitted at the start of each school year. 

Immunization Requirement 


All students entering 6th grade must show proof of having received one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) or commonly known as the meningitis vaccine. All 12th grade students will be required to show proof of having received 2 doses of this vaccine, or one dose only if first one is received on or after the 16th birthday.

In addition to this new vaccination requirement, all entering 6th grade students will need to show proof of having received two doses of Mumps, Measles, Rubella and Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccines as well as a Tdap booster vaccine.

   Dental Exam Information

All 6th grade students MUST have a dental examination dated after November 15, 2016 on file with the school by May 15, 2018.
A dental program will be offered at MMS in the spring of 2018. More information will be provided for this at registration if you are interested. Contact Mrs. Henson if you have any questions.

      Vision and Hearing Screenings

All 8th grade students, students receiving special education services, and new students to the district are required to have vision and hearing screenings. These screenings are done throughout the school year by the school nurse at MMS. A referral will be mailed to you if your child is in need of further follow-up. Please contact Mrs. Henson if you have concerns.
Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months. (Section 27-8.1 of the School Code)
