SCHOOL HEALTH FORMS
NEED IMMUNIZATION RECORDS FOR YOUR child ?
Access your family's immunization information and Certificate of Immunization form through the Department of Health website MyIR. You will need to set up an account to access the information. You can also call or email DOH office WAIISRecords@doh.wa.gov or 1-866-397-0337.
We coordinate with the Snohomish Health District in protecting children from certain symptoms of communicable diseases. If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them home, or make appropriate child care arrangements.
Bringing a child to school with the above symptoms puts other children and staff at risk of getting sick. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, in the long run, this means less illness and fewer lost workdays for parents.
It is Flu season, and not too late to get vaccinated! Check with your doctor’s office, medical clinic, or a local pharmacy to get the Influenza vaccine.
The Flu virus is spread from person to person through droplets, or contaminated surfaces. People infected with the flu can spread the flu to someone else before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick.
If you or your child has the Flu: it is important to protect the health of others by covering your cough, frequent hand washing, and staying home away from crowds when you are ill.
When reporting your child’s school absence, please specify their symptoms as we report these specifics to the Snohomish Health district for disease surveillance.
