Please remember to take the time during the summer months to have your child seen by their physician for a well child checkup or any health concerns. Talk to your physician about any immunizations your child may need. This will prevent your child from missing any school days at the beginning of the school year due to any missing immunizations. Also, if your child has any health issues or receives medications while at school, please take the time to have their physician complete all required paper work for the school. Most of the required forms are to the right of this page. Just click on the needed form. These forms have to be completed every school year and must be updated. Your child’s health is very important to us and we want to make sure they are taken care of while at school. Again, we want to stress the importance in well child checkups and talking to your physician about any concern you may have.
