Arizona Administrative Code: Title 9, Chapter 6, Article 7 requires all students attending public schools to be immunized against preventable diseases. At the time of registration, all parents/guardians must furnish documented proof of required immunizations or exemption to the School Nurse. Students not in compliance with Arizona State immunization requirements will be excluded from school until proof of immunity is presented.
Please review your child’s immunization record and contact your physician or the Pima County Health Department to schedule immunization updates if needed. Your child’s record should reflect the following required immunizations.
When necessary, prescriptions medications may be administered at school with written permission from the student's parent or legal guardian. The medication must be prescribed by a licensed provider, be in the original container, properly labeled with; the student's name, the name of the medication, dosage, and the times to be given.
Parents may request the health office to administer some over the counter medications (antihistamines, pain relief medications, and decongestants/cough medications) for up to three days without a prescription.
Students are allowed to carry medications necessary to treat life threatening conditions. Examples are asthma inhalers, Epi-pens, and diabetic supplies. No other medications may be carried by the student.
The HO has a few items of clothing for students to borrow when their clothing has been soiled, or if the student has come to school inappropriately dressed. Keep us in mind when your child outgrows his/her clothes. We are always in need of good used clothing.
