2017-18 Medical Forms Information
Medical & Emergency Forms
Before the start of the school year, families need to log-in to the secure SchoolDoc.com website and fill out required information for each student. Recommended browsers for SchoolDoc.com are Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
On May 3 you should have received a welcome email from SchoolDoc with a unique account registration link; if you did not, please contact email@example.com and she will resend that email. The information that is being gathered will allow us to produce the emergency form needed for each student to during school related activities and provide health history and medical clearance for athletics participation. US Fall athletes need their medical profile complete by August 21; all other students must have a complete profile before the start of school on August 28.
How to access your child’s health records profile:
- Click the link in the welcome email that was sent to you on May 3 to set a new password for your SchoolDoc.com account.
- Follow the instructions, and complete the profile for your student. Alerts will appear for any missing required information.
- Upload any required documents to your SchoolDoc.com account. (Pictures of documents are easily uploaded from cell phones.)
- Return to SchoolDoc.com at any time to make changes/updates to your student’s health information before school begins on August 28th. Please note that US Fall athletes need the profile complete by August 21st to be eligible for the first day of tryouts.
Please set the domain schooldoc.com as a ‘safe sender,’ to avoid accidental delivery to junk and spam folders.
It is very important that the information is complete and as accurate as possible. In addition to the general demographic information about each child and family, we will also be asking you for an acknowledgement on a "Consent for Emergency Medical Treatment" clause, emergency transportation information and that you have read and understand the signs and symptoms of concussions, sudden cardiac arrest, environmental conditions, health and eating disorders. Please note that if you need to make any updates to the information, you can log in to the secure site at any time to do this throughout the school year.
The Medical Information Form (student health history and student physical form) is available in SchoolDoc as well. It is important to note that part II of this form requires a health care provider's signature (MD, DO, ARNP, PA, ND). This form is required for all new students, all students entering ninth grade and any student wanting to participate in the athletic programs at either the middle school or upper school level. The Medical Information form is valid for one year from date of exam. State and school policy requires that the Medical Information Form be valid for the full length of the athletic season the student is participating in.
Immunization requirements for new students to Overlake and 6th grade students:
Washington State law requires that all children entering a school in the 5th through 12th grade must show proof of immunizations or have a certification of exemption. However, if your child is coming from out of state, from out of the country, or has turned 11 since the beginning of this past school year, we need to verify the below vaccinations have been completed:
Your child must have updated documentation of these immunizations and a completed record on file before the first day of school in the fall. A health check-up that includes vaccinations is recommended for all children aged 11-14 years. Please upload the state Certificate of Immunization Status showing dates of Tdap and Varicella immunization and submit the manual entry of immunization records on SchoolDocs.com Students that are new to Washington State are required to provide immunization records on the Certificate of Immunization Status with the parent signature for vaccinations recognized by the state.
The state law with regard to medical exemptions now requires a licensed health care provider to sign the Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider has provided the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information. This document must be uploaded to SchoolDoc if applicable.
Vaccine and Disease Information:
- Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap)
The Tdap vaccine protects teens against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). The vaccine is recommended for all children 11 years and older. Tdap should replace one tetanus booster. Pertussis is a very serious disease that causes coughing spells, making it hard to eat, drink, and even breathe. It can also cause pneumonia, seizures, brain damage, and death.
- Varicella (Chickenpox)
Children are required to have two doses of the varicella vaccine in grades 5-8 to protect against chickenpox. Chickenpox spreads easily and can cause serious skin infections, pneumonia, meningitis, and even death. Even mild cases of chickenpox are uncomfortable; it is difficult to treat itchiness and there is potential for scarring.
- Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a serious disease that affects the liver. It is caused by the hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis B can cause mild illness lasting a few weeks, or it can lead to a serious, lifelong illness. Vaccination is typically administered by 6 months of age.
Most people infected with polio have no symptoms, and many recover without complications. But sometimes people who get polio develop paralysis (cannot move their arms or legs). Polio can result in permanent disability. Polio can also cause death, usually by paralyzing the muscles used for breathing. Most people should get IPV when they are children. Doses of IPV are usually given at 2, 4, 6 to 18 months, and 4 to 6 years of age. The schedule might be different for some children (including those traveling to certain countries and those who receive IPV as part of a combination vaccine). Your health care provider can give you more information.
