Fall 2010 Immunization Update: Parents of children entering kindergarten or 7th grade will need to show proof that their child has either received two chickenpox (varicella) shots or has had the disease (beginning in September 2010 the disease needs to be documented by a health provider), or show proof of declining the immunization by filing an exemption. Please see the MDH (Minnesota Department of Health) website http://www.health.state.mn.us/immunize for more information.
Health services will be provided to students as needed. These services include, but are not limited to: health monitoring and screening, the care and treatment of emergency and/or urgent healthcare issues, healthcare interventions such as medication administration and specialized healthcare procedures, counseling and health teaching.
Student health services will be provided under the guidance of a licensed school nurse (LSN). Specific healthcare interventions will be carried out by the licensed school nurse or designee of the LSN.
