Meningococcal Disease Information

According to section 118.07(3) of the state statutes, each school district must provide the parents/guardians of students enrolled in grades 6 – 12 with information about meningococcal disease (commonly known as bacterial meningitis).

  • Meningococcal bacteria can potentially be transmitted through close contact with an infected person through direct contact with respiratory and/or oral secretions from an infected person (for example, through sharing drinking containers or kissing)

  • Meningococcal disease can be misdiagnosed as something less serious, because of early symptoms like high fever, severe headache, nausea, vomiting and stiff neck

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other leading medical organizations recommends that all 11 – 12 year olds be vaccinated with meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4).  A booster shot is recommended for teens at age 16 to continue providing protection when their risk for meningococcal disease is highest.

 

For more information about meningococcal disease and immunization, please feel free to contact our school nurse at 262-348-4002 (Joint-1) or 262-348-2002(Badger) or visit the following websites to learn more about meningococcal disease, vaccine information, and public health resources:

Fact Sheet


Student RecordsThe federal Family Educational rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) gives parents/guardians and students over 18 years of age (“eligible students”) certain rights with respect to the student’s education records. These rights are:

  • The right to  to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the date the school receives a written request for access. The school will notify the parent or the “eligible student” of the time and place where the records may be inspected.  

  • The right to submit a written request for an amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or student believes are inaccurate or misleading.  If, upon inspection, the parents/guardians or adult student wishes to seek amendment to the student’s educational records, the parents/guardians can request, in writing, the Elkhorn Area School District to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. If the District decides not to amend the record, the District will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment.

  • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records except as specified by law.  The District will forward records to other schools that have requested the records and in which the student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled, as long as the disclosure is for the purposes related to the student’s enrollment or transfer.

  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the School to comply with the requirement of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office Department of Education, 400 Maryland Ave, SW Washington, DC 20202- 4605
