School Health Services

The Dieringer School District has a Registered School Nurse on staff and also has either licensed nurses or health room assistants in each of our schools. We support students who require individual health plans at school, and provide basic first aid services to students during the school day. Health room assistants are under the direct supervision of our Registered Nurse and receive ongoing training in the care of children.

***STATE WIDE UPDATE***


On August 1, 2020, some changes in the Washington State immunization law will occur. These changes will require submission of complete medically-verified records when your student registers for school or child care. It also changes the Tdap vaccine requirement from 6th grade to 7th grade, and it clarifies what is meant by 'conditional status' for students in the process of catching up on their vaccines. Medically-verified records are defined as the Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) obtained from the Washington Immunization Information System (WAIIS) and signed/dated by a parent, or a blank CIS form completed and signed/dated by a parent with vaccination records attached from a health care provider. This law does not change any requirements for a Certificate of Exemption.

Families may register to access their students' medically verified records from the WAIIS by going to https://wa.myir.net

MyIR | Official Immunization Records

MYIR puts your official, consolidated immunization records into your hands and at your disposal. Take charge of your health and protect your family from vaccine preventable diseases by knowing their immunization status from the convenience of your own computer.

There are many instances where a student or an adult may need proof of medically-verified vaccine records. Many adults have a very difficult time locating medically-verified records! Requiring these records for students will ensure that they are fully vaccinated and their records are complete when needed throughout their lives. 

Students entering the Dieringer School District may start school with submission of one of the following: complete, medically-verified records, a completed Certificate of Exemption, or medically-verified vaccine records with dates showing the student is working toward full vaccination, and the minimum time between vaccines has not lapsed. Students who are considered homeless or are in foster care are exempted from these requirements.  Military families have 30 days after enrollment to comply with vaccination requirements.
