PLEASE BE SURE YOUR STUDENT IS UP-TO-DATE ON ALL REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS!
This is important for all students, however, it is critical for new students to the parish, and students going into Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, and 6th grades. Failure to comply with the immunization requirements as set by LA State Law will result in your child’s exclusion from school until such requirements are met. DO NOT WAIT! Past years have demonstrated that parents/ guardians who wait until just before the new school year starts have had difficulty getting appointments when needed. In addition, clinics and doctors' offices often run out of vaccine.
TAKING MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL
Will your student require medications while at school? In general, all medications given at school are limited to those which cannot be given before or after school and must have a doctor’s order. Please click here to learn more about the requirements set down by the Louisiana State Law (R.S. 17:436, Act 87) and the Lincoln Parish School Board concerning medication administration in public schools.
