Student Health

Whenever possible, parents and health care providers are encouraged to work out a schedule of medications that takes place outside of school hours. If a student must receive medication while at school, his or her parent or guardian must complete a Medication Authorization Form, which is available at each school or can be downloaded below.

The health information you provide at registration and throughout the year is shared with staff as necessary to benefit the health and safety of your child and others. Please notify your child’s school when there are changes in your child’s health and when your emergency contact phone numbers change.

Dear Parent or Guardian:

On May 10, 2011, Governor Gregoire signed a bill that requires a licensed health care provider to sign the Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information.

The law took effect on July 22, 2011. It only applies to exemptions requested after this date. A health care provider doesn't need to sign the form for parents or guardians who demonstrate membership in a church or religious group that does not allow a health care provider to provide medical treatment to a child.
Beginning July 22, 2011, parents and/or guardians who want to exempt their child from immunization requirements must fill out an updated form: 
Certificate of Immunization Exemption.
