Information for K-1 Parents

California State law state requires that all children entering first grade in a California public or private school have a comprehensive health examination or waiver completed within 18 months prior to or within 90 days after the first day of first grade.  State law also requires that children have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) within 12 months prior to or by May 31 of their children’s first year in public school, whether through kindergarten or first grade.  Please turn in the completed forms to the office. 

 

Good health is vital to learning and check-ups ensure that children start school healthy and ready to learn. Families unable to pay for examinations for their children may be eligible to receive no-cost health checkups through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program. Families can learn more by calling 1-800-675-2229.
