Immunizations and Health Assessments
State law outlines the required immunizations for school entry. Students entering kindergarten in the public schools must have a health assessment completed no more than 12 months prior to the date of their entry into kindergarten and it must be documented on kindergarten assessment forms. Parents can obtain kindergarten assessment forms at elementary schools and the Pitt County Health Department.
t is preferred that documentation of immunizations and the health assessments are provided to the school prior to or at the time of student enrollment. Students do have a grace period of 30 calendardays from their first date of attendance to come into compliance with these requirements. A student’s continued enrollment is contingent upon the school receiving documentation of immunizations and of the health assessment.
Please contact your school nurse with any questions about the required immunizations and health assessment.
