Please take a moment to check your student(s) Health Record on Skyward to ensure they are in compliance with the new immunizations regulations. Students who are not in compliance may be excluded on/after the 5th day of school at the start of the new school year.
To access your student(s) Health Records:
- Log onto Skyward and select your child’s name. Please note, you will need to repeat these steps for every child currently enrolled at Spring-Ford.
- Click on “Health Info”
- Students who are out of compliance will see a message at the top of the page, along with a list of the vaccinations needed to start the new school year.
- No further action is needed if there not a red alert message.
Your physician can provide needed immunizations, or a letter specifically stating that the student “is sufficiently immunized at this time.” All physician information relating to immunizations should be submitted to your child’s school nurse prior to the start of school.
QUESTION: Skyward indicates my child is out of compliance on the polio vaccination, but when I click on the details, it has dates listed for all doses. Do I need to contact my doctor's office?
ANSWER: The State of Pennsylvania requires four doses of Polio. The 4th dose should be administered on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose given. A 4th dose is not necessary if the 3rd dose was administered at age 4 years or older and at least 6 months after the previous dose. Please click here for more information.
QUESTION: My child has an appointment scheduled, what will happen on the first day of school?
ANSWER: If additional doses are required and are medically appropriate within the first five days of school the child shall have either the final dose during that five-day period; or the child shall have the next scheduled dose and shall also provide a medical certificate setting out the schedule for the remaining dose.
