All incoming Kindergarteners for the 2019-20 school year are required to have the following forms on file at school by the first day of school, August 15, 2019. According to Nebraska Law, if your child is NOT properly immunized, they may not attend school.
- A completed immunization record. Please refer to the Summary of School Immunization Rules and Regulations sheet for the required vaccines for school entrance.
- A physical exam performed by a physician, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner. Call to make an appointment soon, spots fill up fast.
- A vision exam is required by state law and must be completed within six months prior of starting school. It may be performed by a physician, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner along with the required physical exam, or a separate exam conducted by an optometrist or ophthalmologist meets this requirement.
