Student Health and Immunization Requirements:
We work in conjunction with the Department of Health to ensure that students meet key health requirements.All children attending school in Hawaii must have a signed and completed Student’s Health Record to document the following:
- Tuberculosis (TB) clearance: Please see below and visit the Department of Health website for more information:
- Physical Examination: Must be completed within one year before:
- First date of attendance at a preschool or school in Hawai‘i and
- First date of attendance in the 7th grade.
- Immunizations: Required immunizations depend on the age and/or grade of the student.
- Beginning July 1, 2020, additional immunizations are required for students entering preschool, kindergarten, 7th grade, and all students entering school in Hawaii for the first time, regardless of age.
- Children may be exempt from immunization requirements for medical or religious reasons.
- Medications: If your child requires emergency rescue medications or other daily/routine prescribed medications, please fill out this form and take it to the school.
A student who does not have documentation of all the required immunizations or a physical examination may be allowed provisional entry with verification of an upcoming medical appointment.
If a child is experiencing unstable housing (per the McKinney-Vento Act) or is an undocumented immigrant, refugee, or seeking asylum (as established by Plyer v. Doe), he/she may enroll and attend class while a school arranges for the transfer of health records or while a Community Homeless Concerns Liaison assists the student in meeting health requirements.
Students living outside of the area who wish to attend Konawaena Middle may request an exception from January 1st to March 1st each year by completing a Geographic Exception Request (GE Request Form CHP13-1). Due to limited capacity at KMS, the number of students living outside of our geographic boundaries may be restricted. Transportation to and from school for "GE" students is the responsibility of the parents, unless approved by the district transportation officer.
