Ilness and Well-Visits

When Your Child is Sick

There are illnesses for which a child must be kept out of school or childcare. The brochure linked below explains when your child needs a doctor’s note or medical treatment to come back to school or childcare after certain illnesses. If you have any questions about the School and Childcare Exclusion List, please contact your child’s school, childcare or your local health department.

Well Visit and Vaccine Reminders to School-Aged Children

Now is the time to call your pediatrician or family doctor’s office to schedule a yearly checkup for your child.  This includes vaccinating your child/children with all recommended vaccines. Preteens especially need to receive their recommended vaccines. Children ages 9-12 are due for four vaccines to protect against diphtheria, HPV-related cancers, meningitis, tetanus, and whooping cough.
