Step 2: School Health Information

Updated 1/2021
School Health Information

We welcome your child to Kindergarten.  The following paragraphs contain information on health requirements for all students.  The period of time between registration and the beginning of the school year will give sufficient time to meet these requirements by the first school day.

1. HEALTH INVENTORY AND CONSENT FORM – Completed at time of registration and must be updated yearly.  State law requires parental consent in order for the school nurse to treat your child. 


2. ALL IMMUNIZATIONS – Completed, or have a Physician’s “In Progress” medical form on file, in order to be permitted to attend the first school day.


The St. Charles County Department of Health, 1650 Boonslick, St. Charles, offers immunizations for families who meet one or more of the following criteria:  underinsured, uninsured, Medicaid recipients, Alaskan Natives and Native Americans.

At this time, vaccinations are available by appointment only on Wednesdays.  Please call 636-949-1857.

PARENT/GUARDIAN REQUIRED – A parent or guardian needs to accompany all students in order to sign the consent(s).  Parents may delegate others, in writing, to obtain immunizations when they cannot do so personally.

Important Immunization Information

In accordance with the Missouri state law, the Fort Zumwalt School District will not allow any student to enter school without current, updated immunizations.  THERE IS NO “GRACE” PERIOD.


Stated below are state guidelines that must be followed in order to be in compliance with the state requirements:

  • The parent or guardian shall furnish the superintendent or school administrator satisfactory evidence of immunization or exemption from immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox (Varivax vaccine) and Hepatitis B.  Please note the Hepatitis B vaccination series requires a six (6) month time span to complete.

  • Satisfactory evidence of immunization means a statement, certificate, or record from a physician or other recognized health facility or personnel stating that the required immunizations have been given to the person and verifying the type of vaccine and month, day, and year of administration.  All children starting Kindergarten shall be required to provide documentation of the month, day and year of vaccine administration.

This means your child must have completed all immunizations, or have a Physician’s “In Progress” medical form on file, in order to be permitted to attend the first school day. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school’s nurse or Dr. Laura Smith, Assistant Superintendent for Special Services, at 272-6620 or 240-2072, extension 18347.
