State health regulations require that prior to students entering the 8th grade, they must receive the Tdap vaccine. Tdap is a combination vaccination to prevent tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). This vaccine replaced the tetanus diphtheria booster for this age group due to the recent epidemics of whooping cough. For more information please contact Nurse.Chastain at 417-458-4700 or email Nurse Chastain from the contact us page listed under "Administration & Staff."
If your home address, phone number, or emergency contacts change, please make sure the information is updated with your student's respective building secretary.
