6TH GRADE PARENTS….IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON YOUR CHILD’S IMMUNIZATIONS

The state of Iowa requires all incoming 7th graders to have both the Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap booster before fall 2022. If your child does not have the required vaccines or a Certificate of Immunization Exemption, they will not be allowed to attend school, sports and school-related activities starting day 1 of the 2022-2023 school year. This requirement has no grace period, meaning your student will not be allowed to attend the first day of school. Please send your child’s updated record to the school nurse ASAP. If you have questions, or are wondering if your child has already received these vaccines please call your child’s health care provider or contact the school nurse via e-mail: anne.larson@ankenyschools.org

Join Us April 21 for the Parent Advisory Committee

Please join us for the April 21, 2022 PAC meeting. This will be an open discussion about the draft Strategic Plan and Graduate Profile. The partnership between families, parents, students, and the school has always been a priority in Ankeny. This collaboration will grow as parents and families unite in support of student learning experiences such as career exploration and awareness of work-based learning.  Determining a student’s vision for their future and engaging in learning that centers the student’s voice and choice in the process is best done when the educational team and the family work together.

Jazz Band Concert 4/12/2022

Hello Jazz Band families,

We are looking forward to seeing you for our jazz concert! If you have seen the weather for tonight, you know that there is a chance of severe weather similar to that of March 5 in the evening.

In an effort to get us all home safe and sound, we are moving tonight’s night jazz concert to a 6 pm start time.  This means a 5:30pm call time at AHS for our Tuesday-Friday Jazz students.

We realize that this may conflict with other activities and appreciate your flexibility. Please know, we understand and are willing to work with you.

Thank you for your understanding.
