For the 2020-2021 school year, the North Dakota Department of Health School Immunization Requirements have been updated to require a second dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) for students entering eleventh or twelfth grade. All eleventh and twelfth grade students will need proof of two doses of MCV4 before returning to school in the fall. Students must be 16 years of age to receive the second dose.
Information for Self-Administration of Over the Counter Medication for 2020-2021
Self-administration of over the counter medication (i.e. Tylenol, Ibuprofen) requires a parent and student signature (no physician signature needed). However, if the dosage is above the recommended dose on the bottle, it will require a physician signature. Prescription medication that is self- administered will still need a physician, parent, and student signature. If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse.

What are Advanced Placement (AP) Classes?
AP courses are rigorous, college-level classes in a variety of subjects that give students an opportunity to gain the skills and experience colleges recognize. The AP curriculum, administered by The College Board, consists of standardized high school course that are roughly equivalent to undergraduate college courses. After completing an AP class, student typically take the AP exam in that subject, which can earn them credits and accelerated placement in college.
Why take an AP class?
- Be challenged. Advanced Placement classes are rigorous and demanding, offering an intellectual stimulation that students won't get in regular high school courses.
- Improve college admissions chances. AP classes will raise the "wow" factor of a student's high school record. If a student does well in an AP class, it's a signal to admissions counselors that he or she is ready for the pressures of college study.
- Arrive at college better prepared. AP classes sharpen students' writing skills, teach them how to think critically, and improve their problem-solving abilities. AP students learn to navigate the academic expectations they'll encounter in college courses.
- Earn college credit. AP exams are scored on a scale of 1 (lowest) through 5 (highest). If a student earns a 3 or higher, he or she can receive course credits, advanced placement, or both upon arriving at college. AP policies vary from school to school, but the majority of colleges in the U.S. (as well as colleges and universities in 40 other countries) grant credit and/or accelerated placement for AP exams.
- Win scholarships. AP courses and exam scores help students qualify for scholarships. According to The College Board, 31 percent of colleges and universities look at AP experience when making scholarship decisions.
- Save money. Students with AP experience and credits are more likely to graduate from college in four years. Extra semesters (or years) at college can put a heavy financial burden on families
