Requirements for 2011/2012 school year.

Good Afternoon parents,

Please be advised of the new immunization requirements for incoming kindergarten students. Your child’s Pediatrician should know of these changes. The guideline sheet can be found on the Arlington Health and Nursing Service site (or you can pick up a hard copy from my office.) The site should be up and running by Thurs  5/19/11.

State law requires that a copy of a physical exam conducted at age nine must be a part of your child’s school health record. All incoming 4th grade students must have an updated physical in their school health record.

I will be sending home medication forms to those students who take medication at school or those who have an inhaler or Epi-pen at the school. Every new school year we need updated forms from parents and doctors.

I’m sure we all hope to see the sun soon. The only good news is that the rain helps control allergens in the air. I have seen a decrease in allergy synptoms with in the last week.
