With the start of the new school year just around the corner, life can get a little hectic. To make it easier on you, we’ve developed a Back to School Health Checklist to make sure your child is healthy and ready to start the new school year!
Back to School Health Checklist
Vision Test – why? Children who can’t see well can’t perform as well in school. Visit your pediatrician for a simple eye exam prior to the beginning of the school year.Vaccinations – visit the American Academy of Pediatrics website for a list of vaccinations per age group.
Emergency Telephone Number Card- make sure this is accurate and kept up to date so the school can contact the proper people when necessary.
Medical Problems/Allergies- update the school on any new issues before the start of the school year.
After School Arrangements – create an after school plan along with a back-up plan in case anything changes.
