Free Childhood Immunizations

There are occasional free clinics in the area for children to receive their immunizations. If your child or someone you know needs to up-date his or her shots, please contact our nurse in the Health Room at 360.802.7576 for upcoming clinics.

 

Free Dental Care

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 can't afford care, please have them contact Laurel Bailey at 360.615.5653 to schedule an appointment.

 

Information From Our School Nurse

Beginning July 31, 2011 all exemptions requested for immunization compliance will be required to have a physician's signature. This includes personal, medical or religious reasons. Certificates of Exemption can be obtained in the Health Room or Main Office.

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 will be available in the Health Room on the first day of school.
