Healthy children learn better. Our goal is to help children maintain optimal health so they can take advantage of all of the educational opportunities offered to them.
We offer the following services:
All students entering Kansas schools must follow Kansas laws for immunizations and inoculations. Proof of immunizations must be presented upon enrollment. Families who have recently moved into district will be allowed thirty days to obtain immunization records. If your child is in the process of completing his or her required vaccines, documentation must show at least one of each of the required vaccine has been received.
Immunizations requirements change most every school year. The school will inform you of additional shots needed for fall enrollment.
