Arbor Day at Belpre Elementary 2016
Belpre Elementary 6th grade Student Council members:  Sadie Dement, Rebekah Carter, and Paige Caldwell, help plant a tree in celebration of Arbor Day.                                                  
 
 Students along with Mayor Mike Lorentz and BHS biology students plant another tree in the Arbor Day row at Belpre Elementary School.
 
Rain didn't stop these youngsters from taking part in the annual Arbor Day tree planting.  This year the celebration included the city tree commission, Bob's Market, BHS biology department, and the Belpre In Bloom organization.  All students participated in center activities that thighlighted the use of trees in our community.  Some children even planted a sapling to replant at their own home.

Notice:  Parents of children entering 7th and 12th grade for 2016-2017 school year.
 
The Ohio Department of Health has revised the immunization requirements for school attendance for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year.
 
In addition to all previously required immunizations, students entering the 7th grade will now be required to have the following immunizations:
     1.  One booster dose of Tdap vaccine
     2.  One dose of meningococcal vaccine
 
In addition to all previously required immunizations, students entering the 12th grade will now be required to have one dose of the meningococcal vaccine, given on or after the student's 16th birthday.
 
Parents must provide the school with their child's updated immunization record before the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.  As per Ohio Revised Code, students may not attend school until this requirement is met.  Please send this documentation to the school nurse as soon as possible.
 
If you have any questions or concerns contact Nurse Robbin at 740-423-3010.
