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: Spiritual Practices

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: Spiritual Practices

    Marie Campione (lk)
    Today's wise words are from pastor and author Brian McLaren. These words come from his book titled Finding Our Way Again, The Return of the Ancient Practices (page 14):
    Spiritual practices are actions within our power that help us narrow the gap. They help us become someone weighty, someone worthy of a name and reputation, someone who makes survival worthwhile by turning life’s manure into fertilizer. They’re about surviving your twenties or forties or eighties and not becoming a jerk in the process. About not letting what happens to us deform us or destroy us. About realizing that what we earn or accumulate means nothing compared to what we become and who we are. As such, spiritual practices are pretty earthy, and they’re not strictly about spirituality as it is often defined; they’re about humanity. Which brings us to the second reason they’re important – aliveness.
    Spiritual practices could be called life practices or humane practices, because they help us practice being alive, and humanely so. They develop not just character but also aliveness, alertness, wakefulness, and humanity.

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: This is What's Important

    Marie Campione (lk)
    Today's Wise Words come from Iain Thomas. Mr. Thomas is a South African author and poet:

    And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, 'This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!' And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, 'No. This is what’s important.'

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: The Preciousness of Life

    Marie Campione
    Today's Wise Words come from a Polish-born American rabbi and leading Jewish theologian and philosopher of the 20th century; Abraham Joshua Heschel. With all that is going on this month from Valentine's Day to the Year Anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Rabbi Heschel's words speak directly to the preciousness and frailty of life.
     
    “Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ....get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”
