Welcome to the Health Office with Nurse Sharon!

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, 2022 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.
