Health and Immunizations
by Lupe Kollasch

All health-related concerns should be shared with the school nurse. We feel the health of students is of utmost importance and needs to be addressed along with academic concerns.
Iowa law requires that evidence of immunization or exemption be presented before any student is enrolled in the North Kossuth School District which includes North Kossuth Elementary, North Sentral Kossuth Middle School and North Sentral Kossuth High School. Immunizations required include diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, Hepatitis B, chickenpox, and pneumococcal. Prior to your child’s first day of class, a certificate documenting these immunizations is required to be on file at the school nurse’s office. This record can be obtained through your medical office.
Please see additional information regarding health under “Physicals and Screenings,” “Medication Policy,” “Accidents or Illness,” and “Medication”.
