The Allen County Public Health will be seeing children and teens in need of immunizations by appointment only. They are prioritizing those that are needing their immunizations for school attendance first. Parents will need to call to schedule an appointment as they are not offering online scheduling at this time. Their number is (419) 228-4457. A letter was mailed out detailing the requirement for all incoming 7th graders for the 2022-2023 school year to receive the Tdap and MCV4 vaccines prior to the start of 7th grade. Students without proof of vaccination will be subject to exclusion from school.
Students participating in a school sport must have a current sports physical on file before attending any open gym, camp or practice. Physicals are good for one year. You must schedule your own appointment and complete an Athletic Physical form online through Final Forms prior to getting your physical. Information is in the high school office on how to do this or you can go to the schools website blufftonschools.org and click on Sports Physical at the bottom of the page for directions. Make sure to pick up a physical form in the office or print one out from the website before your appointment.
For your convenience, credit card and debit card payments can be made to your child’s class fees and lunch account (online only) through our new “EZPay” system. Information will be mailed with the student’s class fees on how to register for this service. Our office will continue to accept check and cash payments.
Student Athletic passes are on sale in the middle school office. Each punch pass card is $25 and gets a student into 10 home games of any sporting event at either the Jr. High, JV, or Varsity level.
If you would like to be notified of delays and/or cancellations/sporting information via a text message on your cell phone, visit sendit.live to sign up for this service. Contact the office if you have any questions.
