Health Room Reminders:

  1. A child must be fever free (without taking tylenol or other fever reducing medications) for 24 hours before returning to school.
  2. Please keep your child at home for 24 hours after the last episode of diarrhea or vomiting.
  3. Continue to encourage good handwashing practices at home and school.
  4. Hospitalization/ER visit:  When a student is hospitalized or is seen in the ER and returns to school requiring additional support at school this information (report, physician orders/plans, medications, etc) should be communicated directly to the nurse on duty for the day. The nurse is in the Health Room each day from 9 am to 2 pm.

Required Medical Forms:

For the 2019-2020 school year: All students attending school in the District of Columbia must comply with DC Health requirements regardless of students' state of residence.

  1. Every student requires an ANNUAL physical. The District of Columbia Health Certificate should be completed and signed by a physician or advance practice nurse. This means that your child must have a physical every year within 365 days of the last one and must be current prior to the first day of class.
  2. Every student must have a current immunization record, a current physical, an Oral Health Assessment Form and a yearly Emergency Form on file.
  3. We suggest that you take the proper forms with you to your child's appointment no matter when the appointment is during the year.
  4. A three dose vaccine for Human Papilloma virus (HPV)  is now required by DC law for any female student 11 yrs and older. *DC law allows a parent/guardian to ‘Opt-Out’ of this vaccine by signing a form approved by the Dept of HealthHealth Room
