Dear Parent/Guardians,

 

We ask for your assistance in maintaining your child’s health records to stay in compliance not only with our school corporation’s policies, but the Indiana state requirements.

 

The most current immunization requirements are on the back of this form. The immunizations (or annual medical/religious waiver) are REQUIRED. Your child will be excluded from entering school until they are in compliance.

  1. DELINQUENT IMMUNIZATION STATUS OR LACK OF SIGNED WAIVERS.
  2. An oral temp of 100 degrees or higher.  (Must be under 100 degrees for 24 hours without any type of medication i.e. Tylenol, Motrin.)
  3. Any inflammatory eye condition.
  4. Any cough associated with fever or continuous unrelieved coughing.
  5. Cold associated with other signs of disease.
  6. Sore or inflamed throat.
  7. Head Lice (pediculosis). Exclude until free of LIVE lice. To be checked by the nurse/health aide upon return to school before classroom admission.
  8. Skin diseases and rashes:
