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 all immunizations the student is eligible for before the first day of school. If students are not immunized, they will not start school. Immunizations must be printed on the CIS card from the state registry or physical copy of the CIS card signed off by the Licensed Health Care Provider or a physical copy of the CIS with accompanying medical immunization records from the License Health Care Provider or a CIS printed from MyIR. 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.
Yearly Flu Shots are encouraged!

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 2020, 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 Tuesday, August 17, 2020 to allow time for the nurse to process and distribute plans to staff by the first day of school. Families not abiding with this time frame may not have their child begin school on the first day. 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.
