We strongly recommend that you put your student’s name on personal belongings including backpacks, cell phones, calculators, lunch boxes, and in their books. Student’s often misplace these expensive items, and it is difficult to return them without a name attached.
All new parents should be sure to check the link to the required physicals, immunizations, and birth certificate details below to be sure that you comply with these requirements before the school year begins.
