Welcome!

I am looking forward to another school year! We may look different, but we feel the same! We can’t wait to see the students and begin the “new normal”.

We have been working very hard to prepare for a safe return to school. If you have any questions regarding COVID 19 or our protocols, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by phone or email.

Please review the information below regarding physicals. Email me if you have any questions.

For most up to date local COVID information please check out Eastern Highland Health District website or call 211,

Let’s hope for our healthiest year ever!

Nurse Charlene

 

PHYSICALS

All PK and K students must have a physical annually (including immunizations) in order to attend Scotland Elementary School. Please make sure that we have all updated information prior to the first day of school. Please also note for kindergarten the physical now includes a dental exam that must be completed prior to the start of school.

Sixth Grade students are required to have a physical exam on file PRIOR to entering seventh grade. Please note that no student will be allowed to participate in any sport without a current physical.  Please schedule these early, most primary health care providers have limited numbers of appointments for physicals. If physical is completed before the end of the school year, please send it in with your student and I will add it to the cumulative health record and make sure it is transferred to the appropriate school.

Influenza Information:

All PreK students must be immunized against the flu prior to December 31, 2020 to participate in our preschool program.  Written documentation from your primary physician or a flu clinic must be presented to the school nurse for children to remain in our program. Remember our best protection against the flu is Prevention.  Our young children and elderly are the population with the greatest risk related to flu illness.
