Tdap Booster Required For 7th Grade Students

All rising 7th grade students are required to have a booster dose of pertussis-containing vaccine prior to entering 7th grade.  You may get the Tdap vaccine from your child’s health care provider or at the Chesapeake Health Department. The Health Department carries the brand name, Boostrix.  Many health care providers use the brand name, Adacel, which may be given at age 11.  When your child receives the Tdap vaccine, please send documentation, signed by a licensed medical provider, to Nurse Brooke Thompson as soon as possible.  STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO 7th GRADE WITHOUT THIS IMMUNIZATION.  (THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD).  If the vaccine is given after the last day of this school year, you will need to bring the documentation to the front office at Hickory Middle School.

Routine required immunizations are available at no cost to you for children 18 and under. Please bring the child’s shot record.

HMS Study Hall

Books on shelfThis year with the importance of academics in our schools, we are pleased to offer after-school study hall sessions to all students here at HMS. The program will be on-going throughout most of the school year. Study Hall will be offered each Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:40-4:25 unless indicated on our school calendar.

The study time will allow students time to complete homework and other class assignments, study for tests and quizzes, and complete reading assignments in a quiet environment. There will be tutors available to provide assistance in core subject areas as needed. Again, all students in the school may participate. The program will begin Tuesday, September 17, 2019. Please see the form below for additional information.

This form serves as the permission slip for Study Hall for the entire 2019-2020 school year even if your child does not attend until later in the school year (PDF).
