IMPORTANT NURSE NEWS
Hello and welcome to a new school year at Steller Secondary. The nurse is working to keep
your students’ medical history and shot records up-to-date to remain in compliance with the
State of Alaska’s requirements, but needs your help to do so. Please update your student’s
medical health history yearly and as necessary, so your child can continue to receive the best
nursing care. Review the information below and complete any required forms if it pertains to
your child. If you have completed medical forms during online registration, please print and
bring them in to the nurse’s office. The nurse does not have access to your online forms.
Immunizations Due – Some students will need an immunization booster shot prior to starting school and during the school year. Therefore, immunization must be administered by a provider and the documentation given to the nurse prior to attending classes. The State of
Alaska has a strict “NO SHOT, NO SCHOOL” policy.
Students with Religious exemptions must be renewed and notarized yearly. They must be
updated on or after July 1 and are effective July 1 – June 30. Previously completed religious
exemption forms will NOT be grandfathered.
