STUDENT HEALTH RECORDS
We want to ensure new students follow the appropriate health requirements as they prepare for the 21-22 school year. The following forms apply to students in every division, from infants to 8th grade.
Review the forms listed below in advance to schedule your doctor appointments and arrange for the pertinent paperwork. Make sure all forms include the appropriate signatures and completed fields.
Submit all forms to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1, 2021. Your child will not be admitted to school until the Health Form and the Immunization Records are filed in the nurse's office. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Parents and a physician must sign this form by August 1, 2021. Bring this health form to the physician's office during the examination to complete all fields. Scan or take a picture of the signed document and email to the nurses. We recommend for parents to book a physical during the summer and provide the annual form by the deadline.
Provide an updated copy attached to the Health Form by August 1, 2021. The nurses will review all health records and report to the Texas State Public Health Department to ensure each student is compliant with state requirements. All students, new or returning, must provide an updated immunization record and physician health form every year.
