Proof of immunizations must be provided to school on/prior to the first day of school.
Kansas law requires that all students, eight and under, who are enrolling in a Kansas school for the first time present health assessment information. The assessment needs to have been conducted within the last 12 months before school entry.
Please get the required records (immunizations and health assessment form) from your healthcare provider. Immunizations and health assessments are also available at the Harvey County Health Department by appointment throughout the year. Appointments can be made by calling 316-283-1637. Upon request, services will be offered on a sliding fee schedule based on income and number of persons in the family.
Required vision and hearing screenings are conducted throughout the school year. If you would like your child to opt out of screenings, state statute requires an examination within the last 6 months to be provided to the school nurse.
