Free HPV and meningitis vaccines for 11th and 12th grade students
Buchholz is offering free HPV and meningitis vaccines to all 11th and 12th grades students. Consent forms must be returned to the front office by Friday, December 14th and the vaccines will be given on January 22nd. Two quick notes:
1. For seniors, colleges and universities require a student to have the meningitis vaccine (unless they have a religious waiver.)
2. The HPV vaccine can be very expensive and this is completely free to the students now. This vaccine protects against future cervical and testicular cancers.
For more information about these and other immunizations, see District website SBAC info If you have quesitons, please contact Meridith Burns, BHS nurse at (352) 955-6702.
8th Grade Shadowing has begun
Shadowing allows prospective students to follow or “shadow” a current 9th grade student at Buchholz High. We match students based on their interests and allow them to see what academic options are available to them. Click this link for Shadowing Information.
