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 & 12th grades 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 jihrig@maquoketaschools.org or dropped off at the high school office. For middle school students, fax to (563) 652-6885, email to bbehrens@maquoketaschools.org or drop off at the middle school office. Again, this must be completed BEFORE your child can start school in August 2022. There will be NO grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.

For more information or questions, please contact your school nurse.
