Absences

It is important to report your student’s absence each day your child is absent from school. Please include in your message:

  • Student name
  • Teacher/case manager name
  • Reason for absence (illness, appointment, out of town)
  • Symptoms your child is experiencing or if they have been diagnosed with a communicable disease (fever, rash, influenza, strep throat)

Immunizations

Minnesota State Law requires that each student in a Minnesota school be protected from childhood diseases by receiving all required immunizations. Immunization records should be provided by the first day of school. Download the immunization form now. Parents/guardians may obtain a legal exemption for medical reasons or conscientious beliefs. Medical exceptions require signature by a licensed health care provider. A notarized signature is required for conscientious objection.

Medications and procedures

Individual students may require prescription medication or medically-necessary procedures during the school day. All prescription and over-the-counter medication and special health care procedures/treatments require orders by a licensed prescriber. The orders must be complete and specific, and signed by both a licensed practitioner and the parent/guardian before any medication or treatment will be given. Medication must be supplied in the original, properly labeled pharmacy container. Parents/guardians are expected to transport medications to and from school.
