From the School Nurse!

Welcome to Heritage Elementary!

My name is Marni Dreher and I am the School Nurse at Heritage Elementary and Pickerington North H.S. I look forward to meeting your child and working with you. I wanted to make you aware of some kindergarten health requirements.

1. Immunization Record - The State of Ohio requires all Public-School children to have updated immunization records. Please see Ohio Immunization requirements:

ODH School Immunization requirements

2. Physician Report form - A current completed form, signed by a HealthCare Provider, is due by August 1, 2023. The Physician Report form can be found here:

Physician Report Form

If you have not turned in your child's immunization record and physician report form upon enrollment, please email the forms to school nurse's email marnica_dreher@plsd.us

If you have already turned the forms in upon enrollment, the information has been received and you do not need to send it again.

Health Concerns - please communicate your child's health concerns and medications, if needed, a health plan will be developed and shared with teacher(s).

Change of Clothes - During school hours your child may need to change their clothes due to a bladder/bowel accident and/or falling in water puddles and/or mud. If possible, place an extra set of clothes in their book bag to use.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you!
