IMPORTANT!!!
NYS DOH Immunization Inspection 
Mr. Woods was notified on Friday that OLQM will undergo an audit of ALL students’ immunization records before December 15th - no exact date was set. This same audit happened approximately 
15 years ago. If students did not have immunizations up to date a letter was sent home by the NYSDOH informing the parent that their child COULD NOT RETURN TO SCHOOL until the records were updated.  
Alba and Mr. Guzman will be calling parents this week and it must be addressed immediately -
This is not a maƱana moment!

This is beyond the school's control!
