STUDENT HEALTH RECORDS
We want to ensure new students follow the appropriate health requirements as they prepare for the 20-21 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 the first day of school, August 19, 2020. 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 19, 2020. 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 19, 2020. 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.
HSES requires a daily uniform for students in the 2s classroom through 8th grade. Parents can purchase new uniforms through Dennis Uniform or used uniforms through the PTO. The Dennis Uniform website includes specific guidelines per grade level and gender. The guides also listed below detail the required and optional dress codes.
