**New Immunization Requirements**

Beginning in the school year 2018-2019, ALL students will need to show proof of having received two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine. This vaccine requires the delivery of the doses to be given six months apart. In addition, students age sixteen years and older must show proof of having received two doses of the meningococcal vaccine. It is important to contact your physician or local health department as soon as possible to verify your student has had these immunizations. If they have not yet had these immunizations, you should schedule an appointment before the school year starts. Please bring updated KY immunization certificate to registration at the middle and high schools  or to open house at the elementary schools. If you have additional questions, please contact your medical provider or Rachel Wilson, District School Nurse 234-7121


Children may start school if they have had the first dose of the Hepatitis A vaccine, with the understanding that they must get the second dose 6 months later. Please turn in a current immunization certificate at registration or before school begins, and an updated immunization certificate after the second dose.

Elementary school Grandparents Days have changed dates

The dates for annual Grandparents Days have been changed.

Go Orange!

As a show of support to children who are bullied, please wear ORANGE on Unity Day, Wednesday, October 24, during National Bullying Prevention Month.
Nearly one-third of all school-aged children are bullied each year – upwards of 13 million students. By joining together and wearing ORANGE on Unity Day, we can send a message that bullying will no longer be accepted in this society or school.

Please mark your calendar to wear ORANGE on October 24th!

Southside Day!

Students are asked to wear their Oh, the Places You’ll Go t-shirts on Thursday, Oct. 25.  We will be taking class pictures for the yearbook and would like everyone to wear their shirts that day.

We would also like to thank PTO for purchasing these for our school.

Holiday Dress-up


Monday- Dress in your favorite pajamas

Tuesday - Wear your ugly sweater or favorite Christmas shirt

Dismissal on Tuesday is 11:30

During the Sing A Long, some of the teachers will be sharing their holiday traditions with the students.  Classroom teachers will also be sharing their holiday traditions in their classrooms. We would love if you talked with your child about some of your family holiday traditions before Tuesday so they can compare them with the ones they hear about that day.

Merry Christmas!!
