School Nurse at Sylvan Elementary


Attention: From the Nurse's Office

As the 2022-2023 school year approaches, a reminder to all incoming PreK/Kindergarten students as well as any new students will need Health Assessments and Immunization records. If your child has not had a physical within the past year, please contact your child's physician now to schedule an appointment. If your child has a medical conditions, allergies or medications needed to be given at school additional forms are needed. Please reach out to me if these forms are needed. Welcome to the Sylvan family and I look forward to working with you and your child.

You have 30 calendar days from the first day of school to turn in proof of immunizations and an NC Health Assessment. This is an NC law. If it is not turned in by this time, your student will not be able to return to school. Please let me know if you have any questions!
