Health Requirements for Spark! Discovery Preschool Students
Colorado law requires children in school to have an immunization record on file and to have the required immunizations. Make sure your child has the required immunizations before school starts. Follow this link for a list of immunization requirements from the Colorado Department of Public Health
Cold and flu viruses can spread easily, especially as the weather gets colder and students spend more time indoors. Give your child a good foundation for optimal health by modeling and encouraging these practices in your household:
- Get a good night’s sleep, especially on school nights.
- Eat nutritious food.
- Drink water.
- Get plenty of exercise and fresh air. As long as the outside temperature is above freezing, bundle up and go outside anyway.
- Wash hands often with soap and water.
- Use tissues for runny noses and wash hands afterward.
- Cough in your sleeve or shirt rather than in your hands.
All medications must be kept in the health office. These include:
- Over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and cough syrup.
- Prescription medicines.
- Natural and holistic supplements.
