All families are required to provide documentation verifying that their student has met state requirements for school immunizations.
For students entering 7th and 8th grade, documentation must include 2 doses of the Varicella (chicken pox) vaccination as well as the Tdap booster shot in addition to the other school required vaccinations.
Regarding Covid vaccination requirements, I do not know if/when they will be required but the district will be providing updates.
Students with medical conditions and/or needing access to medications during school hours:
The applicable form(s) should be completed, signed, and dated by both a medical provider and the parent. Copies of common school medical forms are attached at the bottom of this email. These forms need to be renewed annually.
- If families would like to authorize their child to self-carry/self administer medications such as inhalers, epipens, over the counter medications for cramps/headaches/allergies/medicated creams/ointments, etc. make sure the appropriate box on the form is checked.
- If families would like to have medications or a back-up supply kept in the nurse's office, please have an adult deliver the medication(s) to the school in the original, labeled container from the pharmacy along with the completed medical orders.
- Controlled substances may not be self-carried and must be kept in a locked place at the school. A designated trained staff member will assist any student requiring access to controlled substances (such as ADHD medications) during school hours.
Completed form(s) can be emailed to Nurse Hurt at email@example.com
or hard copies of the form(s) may be delivered to the school to be given to the school nurse for review and processing.
I will be checking my work emails as we near the beginning of the 2022-23 school year. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
