Hello Owen J. Roberts families,
My name is Jane Sullivan, and I am the nurse here at the Middle School. Below is an outline of what is required for your child, along with some other helpful information.
FOR ATTENDANCE IN ALL GRADES:
- 2 doses of the Varicella vaccine or history of having had Varicella (Chicken pox) Disease
- 3 doses of the Hepatitis B Vaccine
- 4 doses of the polio vaccine with the 4th dose on or after the 4th birthday
- 2 doses of the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine
- At least 4 doses of Diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis (dTap) vaccine with one of the doses administered after the 4th birthday
FOR ATTENDANCE IN 7TH GRADE AND ABOVE, STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE:
- The initial dose of the Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)
- 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)
- Dental Requirement for 7th Grade
All 7th grade students must hand in a completed dental form. Dental examinations given up to one year prior to the school year will be accepted. Click here to download the dental form http:;//shscs.org/dental%20form.pdf
Please notify our office if you would like your child to be seen by the school dentist.
All forms may be mailed, faxed or brought into school by your child. If your child will be bringing it to us, please follow up to ensure that they remembered to do so.
Throughout the year, all students will participate in height, weight and vision screenings. 7th grade students will also participate in a hearing and scoliosis screening. A referral letter will be sent home if your child does not pass the vision, hearing or scoliosis exam. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding these screenings.
With your consent, I am permitted to administer Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, Benadryl and an antacid. If your child needs any other prescription or non-prescription medication at school, you must submit an “Authorization for School Medication Administration” form. This form must be completed by both the parent and the doctor. Click below to download.

Please remember that all medication, with the exception of epipens and inhalers must be brought in by a parent or guardian. At the end of the school year, parents or guardians are required to pick up their child’s medication.
Thanks again for reviewing the above information. You may click the “Health Forms” tab on the left and scroll down to download other frequently used forms. There is also a “Health Insurance” tab if you would like to purchase OJR Student Accident Insurance or if you need assistance with obtaining health insurance. Please feel free to call or email our office with any questions or concerns.
