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

    US Students Learn More About the Dangers of Vaping

    SB (lk)
    Parents: The Assist team gave a presentation to upper school students about the recent vaping lung disease news. The Center for Disease Control is currently researching cases of a mysterious lung disease found in roughly 200 cases across the country. Scientists are linking vaping devices as the underlying cause. Please take a moment to talk with your child about the dangers of vaping. Research shows that when families have clear expectations about substances, children are more likely to talk with you openly and follow those guidelines. Click to see the content that was shared with students.

    The Assist team is a group of trained faculty members who address substance use prevention and early intervention with students. If you would like more information, please reach out to our school counselor, Sam Borkovic, at or 772-492-2218.

  • Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: Absolute Truth

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: Absolute Truth

    Today's wise words are from Thích Nhất Hạnh. Thích Nhất Hạnh is a Zen Master and Vietnamese Buddhist monk author and peace activist, founder of the Plum Village Tradition which is a Monastery in southwest France:
    “If at some point in your life you adopt an idea or a perception as the absolute truth, you close the door of your mind. This is the end of seeking the truth. And not only do you no longer seek the truth, but even if the truth comes in person and knocks on your door, you refuse to open it. Attachment to views, attachment to ideas, attachment to perceptions are the biggest obstacle to the truth.” Thich Nhat Hanh

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: Reinhold Niebuhr

    Today's quote comes from Reinhold Niebuhr, yes I have used his quotes before. Mr. Niebuhr was an American Reformed theologian, ethicist, commentator on politics and public affairs, and professor:

    “Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime, Therefore, we are saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; Therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone. Therefore, we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own; Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness.” Reinhold Niebuhr
