ANNUAL HEALTH OFFICE NOTIFICATIONS for website
- Immunizations: Please submit a copy of the immunization record so that we can update our files. Your child’s record must include a date for the immunizations and the doctor’s/clinic’s name. Please visit CDPH Shots for School website to view current required immunizations.
- Physicals and Oral Health Assessments: A CDPH physical examination is required for all students within 18 months prior to or 90 days after entry into first grade. However, it is strongly recommended that your child has the CDPH physical before entering Kindergarten. If completed prior to Kindergarten, this exam will count toward the first grade physical, and will give your child a head start should there be any problems such as vision or hearing difficulties. No cost health exams are available to children in low-income families. An Oral Health Assessment (Dental check-up) is also required for Kindergarten and first grade students.

All students benefit from a healthy classroom environment and are most successful when rested and feeling good. Beginning the day with a healthy breakfast and a good night's sleep is very important for a child to have a successful school day. Please refer to the following guidelines to determine if your child's needs would be best met by coming to school or staying home. Thank you for your assistance.
