In August, the Governing Board recognized four Laveen administrators with the district’s Pinnacle of Leadership award. Congratulations to Paseo Pointe principal Kristi Pashley, technology integration coordinator Richard Pino, community engagement coordinator Dr. Joe Roselle, and Laveen School principal Dr. Robert Caplinger.
Our annual Meet Your Teacher Night is August 1 from 5pm to 7pm at all Laveen schools. Visit your child’s classroom, meet the school staff and other families, and complete any last minute paperwork. School starts August 5.
The Arizona Department of Health Services requires that all 11-year-old children entering sixth grade obtain two adolescent vaccines, Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4), or provide a valid exemption. These new immunizations are important as they will provide protection against serious illness.
Tdap is a combination vaccine that provides protection against three bacterial diseases — Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough). Meningococcal prevents against four types of bacterial meningitis.
Parents should review their child’s immunization records. If these vaccinations have not been received, the child should obtain the vaccination at either their doctor’s office or an immunization clinic. Proof of immunizations will need to be received before the student can begin school on August 6.
Students who do not have these required shots, or a valid exemption, will not be allowed to start school. Children who are not yet 11 will be required to get the new immunizations once they turn 11.
