EXEMPTIONS: Only students who have a notarized medical or religious exemption form will be allowed to attend school without up to date immunizations. Personal/philisophical exemptions no longer qualify as an approved exemption. This change in requirements came from the New Mexico Department of Health. You can access the new form and information at the Department of Helth website: http://immunizenm.org/sched.shtml#exemptions.
Head lice have been co-existing with us since ancient times. Head lice are not a health hazard or a sign of poor hygiene and are not the cause of any disease. In the United States, preschool and elementary school students are the most common age groups who get head lice. Our goal is to help parents recognize head lice in their students so they can take action quickly. Your school nurse can provide information about the diagnosis and treatment options for families so children can return to school immediately.
