Update: Student Health Assessments required for ALL children entering NC public schools

Parents have 30 days from the start of public school classes to turn in their child’s ‘health assessment’ or risk suspension…

Student Health Assessments communicate the health concerns and information from parents and physicians for ALL children entering public schools for the first time in North Carolina. Health issues that affect learning are addressed.  State law requires that every child entering public schools in N.C. receive a health assessment.  https://www2.ncdhhs.gov/dph/wch/families/kindergartenhealth.htm

NOTE: This (requirement) shall not apply to children entering kindergarten in private church schools, schools of religious charter, or qualified nonpublic schools, regulated by Article 39 of Chapter 115C of the General Statutes.
