News From the Principal's Desk

August 22, 2016

 

Last week was a great start to our school year!  It was wonderful to see everyone back in school and by Friday, the 5th graders were all doing great with their lockers and everyone knew what bus to ride in the afternoon.  In between we had some strong teaching and learning going on which doesn’t surprise me.  Our staff was ready to go on the first day of school and so were your children – it is a great culture for learning in Madeira and all of us thank you for supporting that culture.

Back To School Information

The 2016-2017 school year is approaching fast.  We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer and are excited to begin the school year with students!  As students return to school, they will be receiving back to school packets with important information regarding the upcoming school year.  In addition to these packets, we are also providing other back to school information in a digital format.  Please see the links below for other important back to school information for your student and don’t hesitate to call our school office if you have any questions.

Immunizations Needed

We want to remind you of the new immunization requirement for the start of the 2016-17 school year.  All students entering the 7th and 12th grades are required to be vaccinated against meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) disease. One dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine is required for 7th graders, and two doses are required for incoming 12th graders unless the initial dose was given on or after the 16th birthday.

If your child has not already received the vaccine, please contact your child's doctor to schedule an appointment.  The Health Department provides the vaccine either free of charge or for a nominal fee for children without insurance or with Medicaid insurance.  You may reach the Health Department at (513) 946-7882 for additional information.

Your child may be exempted from mandatory immunization(s) if you submit a signed written statement that you decline to have your child immunized for reasons of philosophical,  religious, or moral reasons. This written statement will be kept on file as part of your child’s health record.
