Health Forms

Dear New Families,

Welcome to St. Michael’s!  We are looking forward to having you join our community.  

As we welcome you into our fold, I hope this letter will help to simplify the health documents that are required for students before the start of each school year.  Below is a link for each form with a small explanation of who needs to complete the form and whether or not you will need to obtain a physician’s signature.

 

WHEN AND HOW TO SUBMIT FORMS:

Please submit all forms in hard copy (NO electronic submissions please), by early August if possible, and no later than the end of the week BEFORE school starts.  

If your child has any chronic health conditions that will need regular monitoring and support in school, please call or email me at your earliest convenience.  This will help to ensure that all of the pertinent information is exchanged, to make your child’s school experience as safe and equitable within our community, as possible.

What if you are coming from out-of-state or country?

Please download the RI State Physical Exam Record offered below, and bring it to your child’s current primary care physician for completion.  Immunization records can be attached (they do not have to be filled in on the sheet).  If it is not possible to have a doctor complete this form before you come, please bring a copy of your child’s most recent exam paperwork addressing all of the information requested in our Rhode Island form.  Physical Exam Records are current for 12 months.

From the first day of school to the last day of school, my child is HAPPY to go to school. I can remember a project they did in 5th grade about food trucks. The class was presenting in early June, and my son bounced out of bed on presentation day.
