Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

I would like to commend your child on their pre-kindergarten promotional exercises.  As we prepare for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, I would like to share with you our district healthcare policy, regulations, and general information you need to know to help us ensure students have a healthy and successful school year.

 

 

IMMUNIZATIONS

 

Missouri’s immunization law (Section 167.181RSMo) requires students to show proof of compliance upon enrollment in public, private, parochial, or parish schools before they can attend school.  The district calendar may be accessed on the school district web site.

 

Check with your child’s primary care provider, clinic, or the last healthcare facility where the child received a shot to obtain the most up to date copy of the entire shot record.  Complete immunization records must include the month, date, and year of administered vaccines.

 

Always notify the school nurse when your child receives a new shot.  If the school nurse sends a Notice of Need Letter to you regarding the child’s need for an immunization take the child to the doctor promptly to avoid the child being excluded from school.  The state law requires exclusion from school of all students who do not complete vaccinations once started.

 

MEDICAL ACTION PLANS

 

Students with chronic healthcare problems, special healthcare needs, and who require medication administered on a regular basis during the normal school day are required to present a physical exam report form to the school nurse at the beginning of each school year along with the following as applicable:

·         Asthma Action Plan for all asthmatics

·         Diabetic Action Plan for all insulin dependent diabetics

·         Seizure Action Plan for all seizure disorders

·         Food Allergy Action Plan

·         Sickle Cell Action Plan for all with sickle cell disease

·         Authorization for Administrating Medication to Student

 

Failure to provide the required forms will result in a delay to begin school on August 10, 2017.

 

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Sincerely,
