Florida Statues 1003.22
 
The Florida Department of Health has 2 requirements for attendance in Florida schools. These requirements include an updated Form 680 Florida Certificate of Immunization and a School Entry Health Examination.  
The first requirement concerns immunization regulations for students entering any Florida school. Each student must have a Florida Certification of Immunization, Form DH 680, which is used to document the immunizations required for entry and attendance in Florida schools.  These forms are not available to the public and must be completed by a healthcare practitioner participating in the Florida State Health Online Tracking System (Florida SHOTS), the statewide immunization registry. Most Pediatricians and the local Health Department can complete this form. It is recommended that parents/guardians obtain a copy of the child’s complete immunization history before going to the county health department or pediatrician’s office.
Students who are making their initial entry into a Florida school must present a record of a physical examination completed within the past 12 months.  The exam record is required prior to the first day of school.  Although a specific form is not required, it is recommended that a Florida’s Standardized School Entry Exam form (DH 3040) be used.  It must be completed by a health care provider licensed to perform physical examinations.  For students transferring to a Florida school a comparable form from another state, country would be acceptable, if completed within one year
Student/Families have up to 30 school days before  being temporarily excluded to present to present a school entry health examination and FL Dept. of Health Florida Certification of Immunization DH 680

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: The Power of Love

    Marie Campione
    From Fr. Tommy: Here is a quote from Rabbi Harold Kushner about Love and what each of us can do:
     
    “None of us has the power to make someone else love us. But we all have the power to give away love, to love other people. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in."

    From the School Nurse: Bad Flu Season Ahead

    Marie Campione (lk)
    CDC Flu Report: At Least 6.2 Million Sick This Season 
    At this point during the 2018-2019 flu season, 6.2 million to 7.3 million people have been sick with flu. Looking back at last year, CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2017–2018 season was high with an estimated 48.8 million people getting sick with influenza. Chances are good the flu will be around us, so please get your Flu Shot (if not medically contraindicated).

    People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:
    Fever* or feeling feverish/chills.
    Cough.
    Sore throat.
    Runny or stuffy nose.
    Muscle or body aches.
    Headaches.
    Fatigue (tiredness)
    Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: A New Beginning

    From Fr. Tommy: Below are some wise words from Henri Nouwen concerning A New Beginning that I believe are appropriate as we are at the start of a new calendar year:
     
    A New Beginning
    We must learn to live each day, each hour, yes, each minute as a new beginning, as a unique opportunity to make everything new. Imagine that we could live each moment as a moment pregnant with new life. Imagine that we could live each day as a day full of promises. Imagine that we could walk through the new year always listening to the voice saying to us: “I have a gift for you and can’t wait for you to see it!” Imagine.
