Our school nurse has the responsibility of taking care of Lower, Middle, and Upper School students, as well as faculty and staff who become ill or injured during school hours. The nurse is also responsible for maintaining student health records, responding to medical emergencies, teaching health classes, and administering medications.
Student Health Information
|EED (Ear, Eye and Dental)|
Form 3300 is now required by law for any student entering a Georgia
school for the first time either as a four year old or a new student in
any grade pre-K through 12th grade.
These forms are a screening tool and can be completed by either your
health care provider or the Chatham County Health Department.
Please remember to have your child’s immunizations updated and a
current copy needs to be on file at the school per Georgia law. We are

physician or Chatham County Health Department.
To view the complete schedule please see web site under immunizations:

care provider for further information. Any student without a current
immunization certificate on file 30 days after commencement of school
will not be permitted back to school per Georgia law until one is on
file. It is recommended that you keep the original and send a copy to
school. If your child receives immunizations during the school year
please send the updated form to the school nurse either by fax: 912
