We are happy to see you and would like for you to stay healthy the whole year through. I have included in this information packet required forms, recommended exam forms, and other helpful information.
All new kindergarteners must have a(n):
·New Student Health Form
·Health Update Form
·Immunization record with proof of booster shots
If you are coming from another school, a records request will be processed so that all previous health care records including immunizations will be sent here.
The State of Wisconsin (statute 252.04) requires children who attend school to be adequately immunized against childhood illnesses. This law requires that an immunization record be given to the District within 15 days of your child starting school.
Parents may sign a waiver if by personal, religious, or medical reasons they decide that their children should not be immunized.
Kindergarten Requirements: 4 DTP/DTaP/DT/Td* 4 Polio* 2 MMR*3 Hep B
2 Varicella (or history of chickenpox)
*The last of these immunizations must be given after a child’s fourth birthday to be counted.

It is also highly recommended that all incoming kindergarteners receive:
a complete physical
These forms are attached for your convenience.
