For more information, please refer to www.michigan.gov/immunize.
You are encouraged to discuss these new immunization requirements with your health care provider or local health care department.
If you have a religious or medical reason why your child cannot be immunized, a waiver form (for required immunizations only) must be completed and signed before starting the first day of school.
Health Care Needs
If your child has a medical condition such as diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, acute allergies (food, insect bites, animals), or a physical disability, and /or requires treatments or procedures during school hours, please inform a school representative prior to the first day of school.
Medications (Prescribed and Over the Counter/Treatments)
For the safety of your children, Cedar Springs Public Schools has a medication/treatment policy, which requires signatures from both the health care provider and parent before any medication (including OTC) or treatment may be administered by authorized school staff. See your school secretary for a copy of the policy and form (s), which you may present to your physician. Both signatures must also authorize any self-medication by student. (This includes EipPens, inhalers, etc.)
We are committed to the development of prevention programs that ensure effective response to urgent emergent health problems of students in the school community. We invite you to direct your questions to the school’s office staff and/or district nurse.
