Parents and Guardians,
Please see the attached documents from our State Department of Public Education and Cabinet for Health and Family Services, informing us of NEW immunization requirements effective on July 1, 2018.
All students must be in compliance with these NEW immunization requirements.
We are encouraging you to begin the process of determining IF your child needs these vaccines now because it is recommended that there be 6 months between the first and second doses.
Therefore, PLEASE DO NOT postpone this process until summer for that reason.
School health nurses are compiling a list of students who already meet these NEW immunization requirements.
If you have any questions, please call any of the nurses at the following numbers during school hours:

High school students from across our service region of Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Owen and Trimble counties will be deciding their courses for next year over the remainder of this school year.
Many times students and parents would benefit from having all the information about some amazing opportunities that are available for their students.
Education in Kentucky and across the nation is changing. If your students are looking for something outside the traditional four classroom walls then maybe consider the following opportunities.
Today’s workforce looks much different than what we have experienced in the past. Technology has been integrated into most careers. Not only do employees need the traditional knowledge and skills as in the past, but now employees must have a grasp on how to use technological advancements to get the job done more efficiently.
We are excited to offer legitimate and much needed training to high school students at the Carroll County Area Technology Center. Our programs offer advantages such as dual college credit through JCTC, recognized Industry Certifications, hands-on training and opportunities for experience.
