Important Information from the School Nurse

Incoming 9th Grade Students:
All incoming 9th-grade students must have a dental screening. Screenings must occur no earlier than 1 year before enrollment and no later than 4 months after enrollment. Screenings can only be performed by dentists or dental hygienists.

Incoming 7th -12th Grade Students:
The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2018-19 school year.  This change requires that all students entering 7th and 12th grade have the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts this August.

All students entering 12th grade must have proof of having the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption.
There will be NO grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.
To obtain the State required Meningococcal vaccine you may take your child to:

  • Your family doctor or health care provider, call and make an appointment today.
  • Walk-in clinics.
  • The Iowa Department of Health, which is usually free of charge, can be reached at 515-286-3798 for appointments.

After receiving the Meningococcal vaccine, the completed immunization record can be faxed to 563-652-5324, e-mailed to phorner@maquoketaschools.org or dropped off at the high school office.

For Middle School students fax to 563-652-6885, email to cbowman@maquoketaschools.org or drop off at the Middle School office. Again, this must be completed BEFORE your child can start school in August 2018.  There will be NO grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.
