Dress Code Reminder

Last year we had many students in the district learn from home. So, with all students returning to school this year, here's the section of the Parent/Student Handbook referring to student appearance. Please review the handbook for your awareness of all policies related to the Chadron Public School District. Thank you for helping to ensure that our students meet expectations.
Article 6 - Section 7: Student Appearance

7th Grade Physical and Immunization Requirement Information

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Nebraska state law requires that students have a physical examination conducted by a physician, physician assistant, or advanced practice registered nurse-nurse practitioner within the six months prior to entrance into the 7th grade. If your child received the school sports physical on May 13th, the physical requirement has been met. In addition, all 7th grade students must provide the school with evidence that they have had a booster dose of a tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine prior to the beginning of school.
