ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • PARENTS OF 6TH GRADERS ARE REMINDED OF IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

    Proof of Tdap, MCV Necessary Prior to Entering 7th Grade

    The Allegany County Public School System is reminding parents and guardians of all sixth grade students about Maryland immunization requirements necessary to enter seventh grade in the fall of 2017. Current sixth graders will need to provide proof of both the Tdap and the MCV (meningitis) vaccines prior to being permitted to begin the 2017-2018 school year as seventh graders.
     
     To make certain that students have an easy transition into seventh grade, the school system is requesting children to be vaccinated and a copy of the record sent to their school nurse. There is still plenty of time to have students vaccinated, and ACPS is simply providing parents with a courtesy reminder in an effort to prevent an additional visit to a child’s physician’s office should a wellness check appointment already be scheduled.
     
    For questions or concerns, parents should contact their child’s school nurse for more information.

  •   Ronald McDonald House

     

    Westmar Middle School will be collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house in Morgantown, WV. Pop tabs will be weighed and then recorded on a bar graph monthly. Westmar students have delivered over 200 pounds per year for the past two years. Wow, that’s a lot of TABS!

    Pop Tabs allow the Ronald McDonald Foundation to turn tabs into cash. This helps families who have a child admitted into Morgantown’s Hospital for extended stays. The Ronald McDonald Foundation provides these families and children with, not only a place to live during their stay, but playgrounds, gas cards, activity centers, and much more to help families feel a sense of home, while away from home.

    Such a small contribution, with such big outcomes! Please drop tabs in Tabby’s collection cup located on the second floor, near Mrs. Snyder’s room.  Thanks for all your help and support.
