Immunizations

A student may not be admitted to school unless he/she has been fully immunized against Hepatitis B, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, poliomyelitis, measles, mumps, and rubella. Students must be immunized for varicella or provide proof from a doctor stating child has had the disease. Documented proof of immunization is required upon admission. All students entering or advancing through grades 7 through 12 for the school year 2012-2013 must be fully immunized, including a required booster against pertussis (Tdap) beginning July 1, 2012 whether advancing, transferring or as a new student. They shall not be admitted without the Tdap booster. Beginning July 1, 2012 only students entering 7th grade must receive the Tdap booster. The required immunizations are available from the County Health Department, the physician, or may be administered by a health care practitioner acting under the direction of a physician. 

Kindergarten and 1st grade Physical Exam

Lawndale Elementary School District requests that each child enrolling in kindergarten have a physical examination within the last six months, verified by a certificate signed by a physician. Every first grader newly enrolling in the District must have had a physical examination within the prior eighteen months, also verified by physician's certificate. In accordance with the State law, if your child does not receive this exam, you must file with the School District a waiver stating the reasons you are unable to obtain such services.

If you do not have medical insurance, these services may be available to you at no cost through the Child Health and Disability Prevention Program (CHDP). For information, you may contact:

Kindergarten and/or 1st grade Oral Health Assessment

Parents or guardians must have their child's oral health assessed by May 31 of the student's first school year (kindergarten or first grade). Assessments within the 12 months before the child enters school also meet this requirement. The assessment must be done by a licensed dentist or licensed or registered dental health professional.
