Message From The School Nurse, Mrs. Susanne Fly

Attention parents of 11th grade students! The Lorain County Public Health Department reminds you that before a student can enter 12th grade they must have received a dose of the Meningitis vaccine after the age of 16. See your medical provider or make an appointment with the Lorain County Public Health Department to get the vaccines your student needs. Call 440-284-3206 for an appointment.  

From The Director of Selective Service
Every year, more than two million men turn 18 years old and are required by federal law to register with the U.S. Selective Service.  They may also submit their registration when they turn 17 1/2 years old, however, failing to register before turning 26 years of age will cause them to lose benefits for life that are essential for their future success.  Research has shown that those who neglect to register after turning 18 are more likely to never register at all.  Registration at 18 provides young men with access to college student loans and grants; job training programs; all Federal, U.S. Postal, many State government and contractor positions; and access to citizenship.  Simply put, 45 seconds online at SSS.gov can save a man 45 years of headaches and heartaches. See Mrs. Blaseg in the Guidance Office if you have any questions.
