Director of Schools Mark Willoughby, announced at last week’s regular meeting of the school board that DCHS teacher and former high-school baseball coach Joey Reeder will fill the attendance supervisor position left vacant by the retiring Clay Farler.Meanwhile, Willoughby made it clear that there was no room for leniency this year on the subject of student immunizations.Students entering kindergarten and seventh grade for the 2013-14 school year must have their required shots up to date or they will not be allowed to attend classes.“If you don't have your shots, you're not going to get to come to school, and if you don't come to school, our new attendance supervisor Joey Reeder will be making a visit and filing petitions on students for not being in school,” Willoughby said Thursday evening.According to School Health Coordinator Dee Anna Reynolds, the school system is working closely with the health department to insure that all students comply.“We got off to a great start Thursday with our pre-k registration, and we have partnered with the health department to help us check those records,” Reynolds said. “They will be out at seventh-grade registration on Aug. 1 to check records for us. They will also be making appointments for us that afternoon and all day on Friday to get those kids into compliance and they will be doing some immunization clinics for seventh-graders.”“The health department has been super, great to work with this year,” Willoughby said.
