All students, who turn 11 years old by the first day of the school year, are required by the State of NH to provide their school with written proof of a Tdap vaccination. This is the adult dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis. It is given at either their 10 year or 11 year old Well Child Check.
NEW FOR 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR: 1 dose of Tdap is required for entry into 7th grade. A Tdap vaccine given on or after the 7th birthday meets the school requirement for Grade 7.
Once they have had the Tdap immunization, please provide a copy to DMS. Immunization records can be provided in any one of the following ways:

IF YOUR CHILD HAS ASTHMA OR NEEDS AN EPI PEN…
Your child needs an ACTION PLAN at school!
ASTHMA ACTION AND ALLERGY ACTION PLANS are the tools you need to keep your child healthy. Your School Nurse needs a plan to take better care of your child while they are at school. Each school year a new plan is needed because plans change as your child grows.
Here’s what you need to do:
Þ Bring a copy of the Asthma* or Allergy* form to your child’s provider
Þ Discuss the plan with your provider
Þ You AND your Health Care Provider must sign plan
*ASTHMA AND ALLERGY ACTION PLANS ARE AVAILABLE BELOW
(ALLERGY ACTION PLANS CAN BE FILLED OUT ON YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU OPEN THE DOCUMENT WITH ADOBE READER)
Allergy Plans have been downloaded from F.A.R.E., Food Allergy Research and Education, a wonderful resource for food allergies and those who are at risk for anaphylaxis. Visit their website at: foodallergy.org
These forms, should be returned to the nurse via fax, mail or dropped off in Front Office before the first day of school.
Over the Counter Medications to be given at school require a Medication Authorization form to be completed and signed by a parent. Your student can bring the medication and completed signed forms directly to the Health Office.
Prescription Medications to be given at school require a Medication Authorization Form to be completed by BOTH a parent AND a Health Care Provider. These medications CAN NOT be brought in by a student. They MUST be brought in by a parent/guardian.
Note: At the end of each school year forms and information are purged as information and orders change. Each year new medication, allergy, asthma, diet, and other forms need to be resubmitted to the Nurse's Office for your student.
