Amy Rach, School Nurse
Minnesota Immunization Law requires that children enrolled in school need to be immunized against certain diseases or there needs to be a legal medical or conscientious exemption on file at the school. Please see the documents below under Health Forms; “Are Your Kids Ready” to see which immunizations are required at the various ages and the “Immunization Form” to fill out exemptions. A parent/guardian may file a medical exemption signed by a health care provider or a conscientious exemption, signed by the parent/guardian, that has been notarized. We have a notary at the school.
A parent or guardian must complete the Medication Authorization Form (Prescription and/or Over the Counter) annually. Please click under Health Forms to see these documents. To help assure the safety of all students, an adult must bring medication to school. Both prescription and non-prescription medications must be in the original bottle and labeled with the correct name, medication dose, and time it is to be given. No baggies of medication or expired medication will be accepted.
When to Keep Your Child Home
Parents often wonder whether or not they should send their child to school. Not only may the child feel too sick to learn very much on those days, but they are also infecting other students and staff. Please click under Health Forms on “When To Keep Your Child Home" to review common childhood illnesses and the usual recommendations of the School Nursing Services. Please keep the school office up to date with current phone numbers so you or an alternate contact can be reached if your child becomes ill or injured at school. If your child is ill, please call the school daily to report the illness.
Please contact me at the school by phone or email if you have any questions.
