  • Note from the Nurse to 8th Students/Parents/Guardians
    If your student is now over the age of 11, they can receive their Meningococcal (MCV) vaccine and their Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine, both of which are required for his/her 8th-grade year per Missouri State Law. We are trying to collect these before the end of this school year, so Fall Registration will go more smoothly. ***Updated immunization records may be brought to the Health Room at school, faxed to 816.858.3748, or emailed to bundrig@platteco.k12.mo.us.***
