Each student should have an accurate, up-to-date health information form on file with the nurse in the clinic. The health information form is mailed or included in the back-to-school packet from each school. Parents/guardians are requested to fill out the form and return it to the school nurse during the first 2 weeks of school. Also, if your child has special health needs (allergies, asthma, diabetes, seizures), please contact your school nurse and complete a plan of care. We request that you notify your school nurse of any changes in your child’s health care plan throughout the year.
Each student entering the school system for the first time regardless of grade level must present the following health related items: Documentation of required immunizations on Ga. Department of Human Resources from 3231. If your child requires a waiver of immunization requirements due to conflict of religious beliefs, a signed and notarized affidavit is required(form is available on this page). Medical waivers/exemptions are a part of Georgia Form 3231.
These forms can be completed by your medical doctor or the DeKalb County Board of Health.
