Immunization Information

All Grades:

The Pennsylvania Health Department has just provided us with new guidelines in reference to Polio vaccinations. Charles Boehm student letters will be mailed out the end of October 2017. Families that receive a letter will need to address this with their doctor and submit an updated shot record to avoid future exclusion. Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter.

PA Immunization Guidelines

NEW IMMUNIZATION LAWS 
Current 6th Grade Students:
The Pennsylvania state law mandates that students entering 7th grade next year must have one dose of Tdap and one dose of Meningoccal Vaccine IN ORDER TO START THE FIRST DAY OF 7
th GRADE.

Therefore, it is extremely important to submit these shot records during their 6th grade school year in order to avoid exclusion for your child’s first day of 7th grade.

If your child has had these immunizations please make sure the school nurse has an updated copy of the dates the immunizations were given.

Please call Charles Boehm Nurse’s office, your pediatrician, or the PA Department of Health with any questions.

Always make a copy prior to sending them in to avoid any further issues.

*Health Examination Sixth and Seventh Grades*

Current 6th and 7th Grade Students:
Physical examinations are required of all sixth grade students and dental examinations are required of all seventh grade students in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  If you plan to take your child to a private physician or dentist instead of school exams, please have the proper form filled out at the time of the appointment. Forms may be obtained from our nurse or on the right of the page. These private examination forms are due now. If your form has not been returned, please do so as soon as possible.

Medication Policy

Prescription medication MUST be sent in the original pharmaceutical container or accompanied by a physician’s order to take the medication during the school day. Any over-the-counter medications must be in their original container and accompanied by a physician’s order to take the medication during school hours. A parent permission form must also be completed for any medication given. All drugs that are controlled by the Federal Narcotics Act MUST be brought to school by the parent/guardian and NOT sent to school with the student.

Medical Excuses From Physical Education

Medical excuses from physical education classes may be written by a parent for up to 3 days. If excused MORE than 3 days, a doctor’s note MUST be brought in. The doctor’s note must state how long the student is to be out of physical education and when the student is cleared to return to physical education. Not providing a doctor’s note will affect the student’s physical education grade.
 
If students are excluded from physical education due to a medical excuse, they are also excluded from school team sports.

Mylar balloons are a safe alternative to latex balloons.
