FREE DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING
Custer School District is offering a free Developmental Screening for preschool-age (ages 3-5) children in the
Custer area. Screening will be at the Custer Elementary School on Mon., August 26th, morning appointments only.
Call 673-2171 to schedule an appointment.
This screening provides information about the child’s development in the areas of motor coordination, communication, & cognitive thinking skills. The screening instrument shows how the child is developing compared to children all over the United States. Vision and hearing is also checked.
“If your preschool child is between the age of 3 up to 5 years-old (and is NOT enrolled in Kindergarten), you may want to consider the CSD Developmental Screening. This is for parents who have concerns about their preschool-aged child, in any of the following developmental areas: Communication, Motor, Concepts, Vision and/or Hearing. Even if you don’t have any particular concerns, but just want to see how your child is doing overall and want ideas of where they might need to improve, it can be beneficial to set-up an appointment.
6th Grade Vaccination Requirements
South Dakota Department of Health administrative rules require both the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) and MCV4 (Meningococcal ACYW) vaccines for 6th grade students. The requirement is a result of legislation passed in 2016 adding meningococcal infection to the list of diseases specified in South Dakota Codified Law 13-28-7.1 for which DOH can require vaccination for school entry in South Dakota.
School entry requirements for South Dakota 6th grade students include:
- One dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis)
- One dose of MCV4 vaccine (meningococcal ACYW)
- The requirements apply only for 6th grade entry and transfer students 6th–12th grade
- If a child is 10 years old when entering the 6th grade they have 45 days after their 11th birthday to be vaccinated.
