McPherson County Health Department Nurses will be giving FREE Tdap Vaccinations to USD # 423 students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) who bring Completed/Signed Consent Forms on or before Wednesday, December 17, 2014, to Moundridge Middle School.

Tdap (vaccine for Pertussis/Whooping Cough) information and required forms are being mailed home to all USD 423 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  They will also be available in the School Office or can be downloaded from the links below or at www.mcphersoncountyks.us under the Health Department link.

Children between the ages of 10 and 14 are vulnerable to the disease if they have not received a Tdap booster shot since getting their DTaP shot before starting Kindergarten.  Please check your child’s immunization record to determine if they have had a Tdap Booster since starting Kindergarten.

This FREE in-school clinic is in response to the recent cases of Pertussis/Whooping Cough in adolescents in McPherson County. Getting more adolescents immunized with Tdap will help prevent future cases of Pertussis in our community.

The FREE Tdap Vaccine will only be available for a limited time and there is a limited supply of FREE Tdap Vaccine.  We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.

Moundridge fans, please save the date!  Author Steven Michael Farney will be joined by members of the 1991, 1992 and 1993 Hall of Fame Moundridge Boys Basketball teams at a special signing of the new book "Streakin."  In a game by game summary, the book chronicles the longest consecutive game winning streaks in the history of both boys and girls high school basketball.  These Wildcat teams won 59 straight during their run towards four consecutive state titles.  That winning streak is currently the second longest in the state's history for the boys.

Coaches and team members will join the author on December 20th from 2-4 PM at Modd's Sweets and Eats.  The hard cover book (216 pages) sells for $30 and for each book sold, $2 comes back to Moundridge High.  "Streakin" makes an excellent last-minute Christmas gift and will be a treasured keepsake of these special, Hall of Fame teams.  Hope to see you the 20th.

The competition included 22 FFA chapters and 178 student competitors.  The MHS team placed 3rd and Jacob Ewy placed 7th High overall.

We have been asked to distribute this information to all employees of our district and other persons who would have suggestions on making schools more efficient.  The Chairman of the K-12 Student Performance and Efficiency Commission has requested that we make information available to administrators, educators, and the public concerning a survey to collect input on ways of fulfilling the Commission’s statutory charge.  Survey results will be compiled after Monday, October 13.
 
 
Keep in mind, this commission's charge is based on a premise that schools are inefficient and they have operated to this point with that assumption, rather than considering the possibility that large budget cuts have already forced schools to become more efficient than reasonable to provide the services necessary to fulfill our statutory charge.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions.
