MAINSPRING ACADEMY: May 2023 – TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK – Mainspring Academy teachers and staff enjoyed beautiful artwork from students, breakfast and treats from our Parent Action Committee, gifts from parents, and an exciting week-long “Candy-Heist” scavenger hunt paired with a delicious barbecue lunch from administration. Mainspring Academy has also received a grant from HEAL Foundation sponsoring our 2023 S.T.E.A.M Summer Camp. Their generosity has given our campers so many outlets to foster curiosity, build, discover, and explore both in and outside of our campus.

Please remember that updated physicals and immunizations will be due prior to the 1st day of school in August. Along with your enrollment forms we will send over the summer and first tuition payment in July, your child may not come in the first day until these have been turned in. Appointments at doctor’s offices typically fill up fast for summer for physicals and immunizations, so please make appointments early! Physicals and immunization dates can be no older than from the year 2022. Next summer, physical and immunization forms can be no older than from the year 2023, so it may even be worth it to go ahead and get this done regardless. For some parents, a new appointment may not be needed and you may simply need to call your doctor’s office and ask if you can pick up an updated form.

Please remember Mainspring does not provide these forms. The forms are called the “Florida Certification of Immunization DH-680” and “State of Florida School Entry Health Form”. New parents, if your child has a religious exemption from immunizations, we will need a copy of this on file. Here are links to what they look like. Your doctor’s office should already be keeping these on file internally: (Physical Form), (Immunization form). Thank you!!
