    Updating students Health Records

    Please return the following forms to enable me to update your child's health records:

    • Yearly Health Update
    • Fluoride Permission Slip 
    • Any recent immunizations or physical examination forms

    (A physical examination by an MD is only required when first entering the school district. However it is suggested by the state health department that a physical be done at each child's developmental stage.)

    Returning this information will help me to keep your students records up to the standards of the state health department.
