Mission/Purpose Statement
School Nurses promote wellness in our schools, respond to issues dealing with physical or emotional safety, and create a positive influence on the learning of our students through health-related support.

Immunization requirements
All students must present documentation of immunization status, including month, day, and year of each immunization before attending school. The Cass County Health Department plans to have staff available at Centralized Registration on July 25 and July 31 to provide immunizations.
  • Kindergarten: Five immunizations
  • Incoming 8th graders: Tdap and meningococcal. (The Tdap vaccine helps protect adults and adolescents against 3 diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. The Tdap vaccine may be documented as Adacel or Boostix.
  • High School: Two doses of meningococcal vaccine by 12th grade. In this two-series immunization, the first dose is given with the Tdap prior to 8th grade, and the final dose is required prior to the 12th grade year.
