  • If a completed health assessment form is not presented on or before the first day, the principal shall present a notice of deficiency to the parent, guardian, or responsible person. The parent, guardian, or responsible person shall have 30 calendar days from the first day of attendance to present the required health assessment form for the child. Upon termination of 30 calendar days, the principal shall not permit the child to attend the school until the required health assessment transmittal form has been presented.

Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can get health assessments and immunizations through the Lee County Health Department.

Schools are staffed all year and throughout the summer. Please register your child as early as possible so the school will be prepared for your child.
