Nurses Notes: Seventh Grade Immunization Requirement
The Ohio Department of Health requires all students entering grade 7 to show written proof of a booster dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap). This shot is intended to be a booster dose for students who completed the initial series of DTaP/DT/Td which was required for entry into Kindergarten. Some students may have already received this vaccine. Please review your student’s immunization records and/or call your physician to determine if your student still needs this booster vaccine. Written proof of the booster vaccine includes a photocopy of your student’s immunization record or a signed statement from your health care provider listing the Tdap immunization and date it was administered. Records may be mailed or faxed to Hilliard Tharp, fax # 614-921-6901. If you have questions or concerns about your child receiving this vaccine, please see your health care provider or call Mrs. Eagle, RN.

Dear Fifth Grade Parents,
We are delighted that your student will be attending sixth grade for the 2015-16 school year. We understand that the transition to a new school can be overwhelming, especially as you say goodbye to an elementary school your child may have been a part of for several years. To help make this transition process easy on you and your student, each sixth grade school will be hosting an orientation/registration night for all incoming fifth grade parents in March 2015. This will be a very important meeting to attend as it will help parents understand the NEW on-line registration process. Sixth graders will have several elective options to choose from, and the registration meeting will walk you through the on-line course request process. Below is a timeline of events and meeting information.
Tharp and Station will each host their own orientation/registration meeting for incoming fifth grade parents. We ask that you leave your fifth grade student at home for this meeting in order to accommodate all parents. Please attend the orientation program based on the session that has been assigned to your elementary school. The meetings for future Tharp students’ parents will be held in Tharp’s gymnasium.
Session 1: 03/11/15, 6:00-7:00 pm
Crossing, Beacon, Darby Creek, Brown, JW Reason, Ridgewood, Hoffman Trails
Session 2: 03/11/15, 7:30-8:30 pm

Fire drills are part of our DNA . . . each month we practice and drill what we do in the event of a fire in our buildings.
Tornado drills a part of our routine . . . each year we take time in the spring preparing for the event of a weather emergency.
Unfortunately we must prepare for more than a fire or a tornado . . . we must prepare and drill for the event of a safety threat. It is the world today; we must be prepared for the worst. Read More…
We are headed into state testing and there is some important information we want to share with parents. First, this video message from our superintendent, Dr. John Marschhausen.
In the past when students took state tests it was administered at one time, in one sitting. Now, the new Ohio State’s Tests are broken into two parts with several units per part. We also want to make you aware that there is an online portion which we will use in some grades. Here is a list of all state assessments and the dates we plan to administer them. At the bottom of this list are some more resources for parents. Read More >>
Please join the Hilliard City Schools Student Support Services Team for a night to connect with other parents/guardians of students with disabilities. This will take place on February 24th from 6:30-8 p.m. at Heritage Middle School.
We will begin in the media center with a brief overview and then break out into sessions you think are best suited for your family. These sessions will discuss transition services; language arts and reading; the IEP process; and, resources and support.
Our goal is to share some information with parents/guardians while helping to connect you with other parents who share similar situations. We want to thank our partners at Hope Education Consulting for working with us on these free sessions.
