Message from our Nurse


Avoid the summer rush and make sure your child’s immunizations are up to date. Students must have all of the required immunizations or an approved exemption before they start school. Some immunizations must be given 30 days apart, so it’s important to start now.

Remember, a Tdap booster is required for all students in 7th and 8th grade. A Tdap vaccination is acceptable if given on or after 10 years of age.

Please submit medically verified immunization records which could be:

- Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) signed by a doctor
- CIS filled out by a parent or guardian with medical records attached
- CIS, from MyIR.net., of your child's official vaccine record.

Medication in School

The Medication in School forms must be submitted yearly (before schools starts)

  • Have your child's physician complete the Medication in School form
  • Your clinic can fax the orders directly to the school at (360) 313-3501 - A parent signature is required at the bottom of the form.
  • Bring in your child's medication and orders (if not faxed) before school starts. Please bring them in a week before school starts.
  • If the medication is for a life-threatening condition, the medication, orders, and health plan MUST be in the school office BEFORE your child can start school!

Life Threatening Conditions:

  • Diabetes
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Asthma (Some students)
  • Seizures (Some students)
Talk with your nurse if you are unsure if your child's condition is considered "life threatening"

Individualized Health Plans

The Individualized Health Plan must be renewed yearly before schools starts:

  • Look over your child's Health Plan, edit it as needed, then sign and date it, as indicated on the bottom of the form.
  • Return the Health Plan to the school as soon as possible. This will enable your child's teacher and the school nurse to safely prepare for your child.

Please call the office at (360) 313-3500 or email the school nurse. Kelli Burton at kelli.burton@vansd.org if you have questions.

PARKING LOT SAFETY- Parent Drop off and Pick-up

In order to minimize hazards to students we are asking drivers to follow these procedures to ensure a safe pick up and drop off using the north parking lot (The south parking lot is for our special education buses and is not a pick-up zone):

● Drop off time in the morning is 9:05 am

● Pick up time in the afternoon is 3:50-4:00 pm

● Please only travel north to south in the driveway when picking up and dropping off, making a loop toward the exit

● Pull as far forward as possible and continue doing so as cars pull out. We will be asking students to wait along the sidewalk

● Form ONE line next to the curb when waiting in your car. Do not stop in the middle of the driveway to pick up or drop off your student

● Remain in your car unless you are parked in a parking space

● Please find a parking space if there is no room along the curb
