Reminders:
If your student is to receive over the counter medications or prescription medications during school hours, we are required by the State of Washington "WAC" rules to have an "Authorization of Medication Form" signed by both the prescribing doctor and parent. All medication must be in its original container and signed in by the student's parent or guardian with appropriate documentation. These forms are available in the Black Diamond Health Room or on our district website's Health and Wellness section at http://www.enumclaw.wednet.edu/departments/health/forms.aspx.

Parents of 5th Grade Students:

Washington State Law requires that all students receive an additional dose of both the Tdap Vaccine and the Varicella Vaccine prior to entering 6th grade, but after their 11th birthday.  If you have not already done so, please schedule an appointment for your child to receive the vaccinations.  After the vaccines are given, please notify the Health Room so that your students' records may to updated.

Enumclaw Youth & Family Services provides free dental care to children, adults, and the elderly for any low income adult or child with no dental insurance, no access to dental care, and/or no means to pay for care. Patients are assessed for urgent needs and appointments are scheduled based on need for fillings, extractions, and referrals for more extensive care.

The goal is to provide more preventative care, such as cleanings in the future. Enumclaw Youth & Family Services provides dental service every second Thursday of the month in the Chamber of Commerce parking lot on Cole St. If you know any students and/or parents who need to be seen by a dentist and cannot afford care, please have them contact EYFS at 360-825-4586 to schedule an appointment.
