PROOF OF TUBERCULOSIS (TB) RISK ASSESSMENT AND POSSIBLE SKIN TESTING The tuberculosis skin test required for school entry is the PPD, administered by the Mantoux method and read at 48 to 72 hours.

The Mantoux/PPD skin test must have been completed within eighteen months prior to school entry. Documentation of the PPD skin test must include the reading recorded as millimeters of induration and must be signed by a physician or registered nurse.

 

PROOF OF IMMUNIZATION*** The new law requires that all students follow the state immunization requirements for school enrollment unless there is a documented medical reason provided by a licensed physician.***

Your child’s official California Immunization Record (yellow card) must be presented when applying. This is to verify that state required immunizations have been received. Please see the attached pdf for immunization requirements.

 

ORAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORM
To ensure your child is ready for school, California law requires that your child have an

oral health assessment (dental check-up). This assessment must be done by a licensed dentist or other licensed/registered dental health professional. Your child is not healthy and ready for school if he or she has poor dental health.

REPORT OF HEALTH EXAM FOR 1ST GRADE ENTRANCE

When scheduling your Kindergarten child’s exam appointment, please keep in mind that the state requires children to have a physical examination within the 18 months prior to the start of 1st grade (which means that it should be no sooner than 6 months prior to the start of Kindergarten or it will need to be repeated before entry to 1st grade).
