An individual student health record will be on file in the student’s school health office. Immunizations, health screening information, and required medical information will be a part of the student’s health record. Sharing of any medical concerns with the nurse will assist in providing care for the student. This information will be confidential. Teachers working with the student will be notified of any possible medical emergencies. Parents/guardians are asked to notify the nurse of any pertinent health information that occurs during the school year.
Contact information for parents/guardians should be on file for each student. We ask that parents/guardians assist in keeping this information up to date and notify the school of any changes during the school year. The information will be reviewed by the parent/guardian during registration.
Students must meet the current State of Iowa immunization requirements and an acceptable immunization certificate must be on file before the first attendance day. Physical examinations are recommended for all students entering Kindergarten, 4th, 7th, and 10th grade. Students entering kindergarten are required by state law to present a lead screening. Iowa law requires a dental screening certificate for students entering Kindergarten and 9th grade. Students participating in interscholastic athletics or cheerleading must present an Athletic Physical Certificate before participation.
