Please ensure your student is fully immunized before the first day of school. Washington State law RCW 28A.210.080 requires all students to be fully immunized in order to attend school. Students beginning kindergarten must have their primary series completed before starting school. Personal waivers may only be attained after a conversation with your licensed health care provider who then signs a document. If your student receives any immunizations over the summer, please notify the school nurse or office to update your student's school records.
Influenza is severe this year and it's important to protect yourself and others from becoming ill. If your child is sick, please keep them at home. If you're not sure if your child has the flu, ask these questions: Does your child have a fever? Do they also have other symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, diarrhea, or vomiting? If the answer is YES to both, your child may have the flu and should stay home. The best way to protect your family is to ensure that everyone has a flu shot annually and to make sure to wash hands thoroughly, drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest, and stay home when ill.

If your child has an epipen, they are considered to have a life threatening health condition and will require a Health Care Plan prior to the start of school.
For fall 2018, all Life Threatening Health Care Plans along with the necessary medications and doctor's orders will be due to the school office no later than Wednesday, August 15, 2018. All paperwork will be mailed home in June. Please plan accordingly so that this very important work is in place prior to the start of school.
In order to comply with state law and to insure that students are safe on the first day of school, each student with a Life Threatening Health Care Plan must have the LTHCP and necessary medication and doctor's orders to the school two weeks before school begins. This gives the nurse the necessary processing time to disseminate this important information. Families not abiding with this time frame may not have their child begin school on the first day.
Tdap Requirement for students entering 6th grade
Please Keep Your Child Home If:
Administration of Medication at School : Click here for the Administration of Medication form for Elementary School
Immunization Information: Click here for immunization Information
Orders for the administration of medication at school are good for one academic year only. In addition, medications at school are not carried over to the next year, and need to be returned to the parent.
To avoid accidents, we do not allow students to hand carry their medication home, but request that a parent pick up the remaining medication at the school office no later than Wednesday June 20th. If medications have not been picked up by June 20th, 2018 they will be destroyed.
If your child has an epipen at school because of a life-threatening allergy, the epipen will need to remain at school until the end of their last day of attendance!
If you have any further questions regarding medication, please feel free to reach me at 425-837-7408.
Thank-you and I hope you have a wonderful summer break!
