The district's School Health Services program supports your student's academic success by promoting health in the school setting. Health Forms, including proof of immunization, need to be provided to the school by all new students and any student wishing to participate in sports during the school year. In addition, students in Grades Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7 and new entering students are required, by law, to have a current physical done by their doctor. Please be sure to get your physical forms and immunization records in to the school by September. If you need a physical form, they are available at the school.
During the school year, the following screenings will be required or completed at school:
Vision: Near and distance acuity for all newly entering students and students in Pre K, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5 and 7. Color perception screening for all newly entering students.
Hearing: Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in Pre K, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5 and 7.
Scoliosis: Scoliosis (spinal curvature) screening for all girls in Grades 5 and 7.
Health Appraisals: A physical examination including Body Mass Index and Weight Status Category Information is required for all newly entering students and students in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5 and 7.
Dental Certificates: A dental certificate is requested for all newly entering students and students in Pre K, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5 and 7.
A letter will be sent home if there are any findings on the screening done at school that would cause concern or need medical follow-up. Please call the school's Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
Food Allergies are a major concern while ensuring the health and welfare of your child in school. Please help us to maintain the safety of all of our children. There are students in our school with severe food allergies. For safety, please do not send foods containing nuts or peanut products for the class to share. Check package labels when sending treats to class, many times there are “hidden” ingredients that you may not be aware of. Tell your child not to share their food with other students. If your child has a food allergy, sending in a “safe” box of snacks, to be kept in the classroom for your child to have is a good idea. This will ensure their safety should a treat be brought into school that they cannot eat. With your help, we can have a happy and safe school year for all of our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our School Nurse at 283-1455 x 203.
