Covid-19 Vaccination Overview:

  • “Vaccination is currently the leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic.” - Centers for Disease Control guidance

     

    • Parents asked (not required) to share child’s vaccination status which will help with contact tracing and hopefully avoid quarantine.
    • Parents of unvaccinated students asked to allow student to participate in regular COVID testing, also to help avoid quarantine.
    • Vaccines will continue to be strongly encouraged.

Submitting COVID-19 Vaccine Records:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Records: We encourage parents to submit documentation showing proof of a student's completed COVID-19 vaccination. This can be done by submitting a copy of their CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card in the same way parents are asked to submit proof of a student’s physical and immunizations.  Here are the options for doing so:

    • Send via email a PDF scanned document to healthservices@u-46.org. The original document(s) must be scanned, saved and sent as a PDF. There are free scanning apps available for mobile phones, such as Microsoft Office Lens, or if you have an iPhone, here are directions on scanning using your “notes” app. 
    • Send via fax to 847-888-5320. 
    • Submit in person a copy of the COVID-19 vaccination record and/or completed health forms, addressed to the school nurse in the health office of the school building your child attends. 
    • Email the school nurse with a PDF scanned document. (Please contact the school health office for the email address for your school nurse.)
