Vaccine Information for 2017-2018 School Year
Attention all Jourdanton ISD 6th grade students and parents:
All students entering the 7th grade are required by the Texas Department of State Health Services to have received the following additional vaccines:
-Varicella Vaccine—2 doses or proof of having had chickenpox illness
After receiving these vaccines, please bring a copy from your physician’s office to the school nurse. Proof of these vaccines must be provided prior to the first day of school, August 21, 2017.
At this point, we are not planning notable changes to the menus. As more information is released regarding the interim final rule, including specifics on implementation from USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and TDA (Texas Department of Agriculture), we will consider whether menu changes are in the best interest of the students.
For your knowledge, below are the three issues this interim rule is addressing:
1. The sodium regulations stay in place, they were supposed to move to level 2 but will REMAIN at LEVEL 1.
2. We will have availability to serve 1% milk instead of fat free
3. Whole grain waiver- this is an interim rule and there are no further details on this quite yet.

Research indicates that students experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer, this is known as “The Summer Slide”. During the summer, the average child loses 1.8 months of skills, which can take teachers up to 6 weeks of teaching to get them back to where they were when the summer started. To help avoid the slide parents are encouraged to engage their children in educational activities during the summer months.
You can follow the link provided below or download the summer activities guide HERE, which provides activity ideas for pre-kindergarten through early High School in all content areas and includes resources and activities for children with disabilities.
