Child Health and Disability Prevention Examination (CHDP)
A comprehensive physical examination and health assessment are required for all first-grade students within 18 months prior to entry or up to 3 months after admission to the first grade. Contact the School Health Clerk for further information.
Each of our K-12 comprehensive schools maintains a health clerk on their sites each day. Our Health Clerks provide the day to day health services to our students as deemed appropriate. The Health Clerks collect the immunization records, administer medication under the direction of our District Nurses, provide simple first aid and contact parents regarding student illnesses.
C-VUSD and the Los Angeles County Health Department regulations require that complete health and immunization records for incoming kindergartners and students new to the district must be presented in written form and authorized or signed by a public health clinic, health care provider or private doctor before a student can begin attending classes. The health records should be brought when parents/guardians come to pre-register children for the new school year. There is no grace period: all immunizations must be up to date before a youngster can attend school. For additional details, parent/guardians may contact the School Health Clerk.
Vision and Hearing Screenings
Screening of the student's vision and hearing will be done at the school site in accordance with State mandates. Parents/guardians will be notified of any findings as a result of the mandated screening test that require further attention. If at any time during the school year you have any concerns with your child's vision or hearing, please consult with one of our District Nurses.
