Online and/or Virtual Tips: 

Having a dedicated space that is comfortable, free from distractions, organized, and equipped with the appropriate furniture (chair and desk) creates an environment conducive to learning.

Online/virtual learning will have a schedule similar to being in a traditional oncampus school day, it is essential for students to develop routines and have access to tools that will allow them to complete work efficiently.

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.
