A Message from the School Nurse

Pennsylvania State School Health Law requires a dental exam for every student upon entrance into a Pennsylvania school.  This exam must be updated for every student in the 3rd and 7th grades.

Pennsylvania State School Health Law also requires a physical exam for every student upon original entrance into a Pennsylvania school, and for every student in 6th grade.   Also for 7th grade, all students  must have a Tdap vaccine.  If your child does not have the Tdap vaccine, your child must receive the vaccine and show documentation within the first five (5) days of school or they can be excluded from school.

Physical and Dental Examination forms will be available for download via the Parent Portal.  Documentation regarding examinations and vaccinations must be provided to the school nurse.  All forms can be sent to the school office marked “School Nurse”.
Reminder to all students requiring medications during the school day (inhalers, insulin, Epipens and oral medications) – Please sign the Prescription Medicine Authorization and return it with the action plan on how and when medication is to be taken at school.  This needs to be signed by the physician and the parent with the necessary instructions.  This form will be found on the Parent Portal and in the school office.

If you should have any questions, please contact one of our school nurses:
