Republic School District

Department Overview
The health services staff is here to partner with you and the school faculty/staff to ensure a healthy and safe environment for your child to learn and grow.   Each school building has a health office that is staffed by a nurse and is accessible to your child during school hours.  Our goal is to help keep your child healthy and in school learning.  If your child has a chronic health issue, concern or special needs, we will work with you and your doctor to ensure your child has his/her needs met.  Please contact your child's nurse for any concerns at any time during the school year.

NEW Summer School immunization requirements and NO-COST immunizations provided by Jordan Valley

Starting with 2017 summer school, all students will be required to be immunization compliant according the Department of Health & Senior Services school requirements.  For example, all incoming kindergarteners will be required to be kindergarten compliant for the 2017 summer school.  Also, all 8th, 9th and 12th graders will need to be Menactra and Tdap compliant.
Your child can receive their immunizations at NO-COST by the staff of Jordan Valley.  Trudi's Kids mobile Unit will be located at the following:
April 28th, Friday 930-1230:  Republic High School parking lot
May 1st, Monday 930-1230:   Republic Middle School parking lot 
Any parent may access this by bringing their child and a copy of their shot record to the mobile unit and filling out the consent form.  For the older kids, parents may sign a consent form in advance and their student can be vaccinated without parent being present.  Print the consent form here and send to your child's building nurse.
