Welcome to Coordinated School Health!
Since beginning in 2001, the Washington County Coordinated School Health Program has sought to create an environment where teachers can teach and students can learn by addressing health-related barriers to learning.
Seventh Grade Immunzation Requirements
If your child will be entering the 7th grade in the 2013-2014 school year, you will be receiving parent notification of required immunizations. Your child will need both a Tdap vaccine and second chickenpox vaccine. Your child will need proof (official TN Immunization Record, either from the Health Department or your child's physician) of immunizations by the first day of school. Seventh grade students who do not have the required immunizations documented on the TN Immunzation Record will be excluded until proof is given to the school. If you have any questions, please call:
Office of Coordinated School Health
Kindergarten Immunization Requirements
If your child will be entering Kindergarten in the 2013-2014 school year, he/she will need to receive the required immunizations for entrance into school. In addition to the regular required immunizations, your child will need to receive a 2nd dose of Hepatitis A vaccine. Kindergarten students who do not have all required immunizations documented on an official TN Immunization Record will be excluded until proof is given to the school. Please call your child's physician with any questions.
New Shoes for Students
Starting with 2011-2012 school year, new clothing will only be given to students on an emergency basis. A resource list will be made available for obtaining clothing from other agencies.
Over The Counter Medications
Many students may need an over-the-counter medication occasionally during the school day. Over-the-counter medications are permitted for use by students following the WCDE medication policy. However, the Office of Coordinated School Health wants to make parents aware that some students may overuse over-the-counter medication that is brought to school. Many students present to the school clinic wanting Tylenol, Tums, etc. at least 4 to 5 times per week. If your child requires over-the-counter medication 4 to 5 times per week, he/she should see their physician for possible causes. Prolonged use of these medications could lead to liver or kidney damage.
