A Reminder on School Immunizations
Effective July 1, 2018, all school-aged children in kindergarten through 12th grade must show proof of having received two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school. A minimum interval of 6 months between the first and second doses of the Hep A vaccine is required. If the child has not yet received the second dose of the Hep A vaccine for this school year, the child’s Certificate of Immunization Status will be considered “provisional” and will expire 14 days from the date the second dose is required.

Students aged 16 years or older also must show proof of having received two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (MenACWY). However, it is important to note that if the first dose of MenACWY was received at age 16 years or older, the second dose is not required for school entry. For children 16 and older, the Certificate of Immunization Status must show the dates the child received two doses of Hep A vaccine as well as the MenACWY vaccine.

Longtime Paducah Tilghman assistant Jonathan Smith was named Monday as the interim football coach for the Blue Tornado.

He takes over for Steve Duncan, who stepped down Friday after suffering a mild stroke.

“You see a lot of good guys in the coaching profession and a lot of good guys who know Xs and Os — (Duncan) was rare in that he knew both,” Smith said. “I’ve certainly learned a lot from him, not only about football, but of people and their situations in general."

In addition to this, his first top coaching job, Smith also serves as Tilghman’s assistant principal for curriculum and instruction. He's been with the program on and off since 2004, and was an assistant coach under Perry Thomas, Randy Wyatt, Mike Rogers and most recently Duncan.
