Please ensure your student is fully immunized before the student's 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 their 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.
Yearly Flu Shots are encouraged!
School wide vision and hearing screening will not be conducted this school year. If you have concerns or have noticed any changes in your child's vision or hearing, please contact your school nurse, Kim Rocco RN. We advise parents and guardians to take your child to their yearly eye exam and see your primary health care provider for any hearing concerns.
Be on the lookout for any warning signs of a vision or hearing problem:
Warning signs of a vision problem include: Covering or shutting one eye, rubbing eyes, crossed eyes, squinting, poor visual tracking, unusual head turn, sensitivity to light, holding books too close, avoidance of vision-based activities, chronic redness, and difficulty in school.
Warning signs of childhood hearing loss include: asking for already acceptable volume to be turned up, not seeming to hear or does not respond appropriately, speaks loudly, seems to not pay attention, moves one ear forward when listening, or says "what?" often.
Low to no-cost eye exams are available to our students who need them, please contact me for a referral. All information shared with the school nurse is kept confidential.

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 2021, all Life Threatening Health Care Plans will most likely be requested to be turned in by mid August. Please watch for more information. Please plan accordingly so that this very important work is in place prior to the start of in person school.
In order to comply with state law and to insure that students are safe on the first day of in-person 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 of in person school.

Please stay home and practice social distancing!
*Wash hands frequently and often with warm water and soap for 20 seconds
