Medical Referrals

Physical Exam - All children enrolled in the Early Childhood Learning Services need to have current physical examinations. For children under 2 years of age, physical exams are required at 2, 4,6,9,12,15,18 and 24 months. For children over 2 years of age, they are required every 12 months. Please schedule appointments with your child's medical home (pediatrician). You may receive a notice from your Health Specialist if these are due or late. It is important that the yellow exam form from the doctor be sent to your child's teacher. If you have any questions, please contact your child's Health Specialist.

Medical Referrals - In the event that the Health Specialist identifies something about your child that requires further medical attention, you will receive a medical referral form. The top half of the form states the concern the nurse has identified. The bottom half of the form is for the medical professional to complete after your child has been examined. Once completed, the form is to be turned into the teacher. If you have any questions, please contact the Health Specialist listed on the form that was sent to you.

Immunizations - Your child's immunizations (shots) need to be current. Please schedule those with your child's pediatrician (medical home) or Health Department. If you receive a letter from the Health Specialist about necessary or overdue shots, you must have them completed and the blue form sent to the teacher. CHILDREN MAY NOT BE IN SCHOOL WITH AN OUTDATED SHOT RECORD. For information about the “Shots for Tots” program, where free immunizations are given through the Lee County Health Department, call 332-9501. If you have any questions, please contact your child's Health Specialist.
