School Health Services

Welcome to School Health Services! 

Health services are provided to Englewood Schools through consultation from the Children’s Hospital Colorado School Health Program. The school nurse consultant functions as a liaison between the Children’s Hospital, the community, and the school by providing information, referrals, and resources.  The nurse consultant assists schools to provide the safest, most appropriate health care within the school setting.

Each RN consultant covers several schools in the district and can be reached during school hours by cell phone.

Immunization Resources:

Colorado law requires all students attending Colorado schools and licensed child cares to be vaccinated against certain diseases unless a medical or non-medical exemption is filed.  For more information about vaccine requirements, resources and exemptions, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s School Immunization page.  Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2

It is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to have his or her child immunized unless the child is exempted pursuant to 25-4-903(2), C.R.S. A student shall be exempted from receiving the required immunizations in the following manner:
(a) By submitting to the student's school certification from a licensed physician, physician assistant authorized under section 12-36-106(5), C.R.S., or advanced practice nurse that the physical condition of the student is such that one or more specified immunizations would endanger his or her life or health or is medically contraindicated due to other medical conditions; or
(b) By submitting to the student's school a statement of exemption signed by one parent or guardian or the emancipated student or student eighteen years of age or older that the parent, guardian, or student is an adherent to a religious belief whose teachings are opposed to immunizations or that the parent or guardian or the emancipated student or student eighteen years of age or older has a personal belief that is opposed to immunizations.

Your student must be vaccinated against:
  • diphtheria, tetanus & pertussis (DTaP, DT, DTP, Tdap))
  • polio (IPV)
  • measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • hepatitis B (HepB)
  • varicella (chickenpox)
  • Vaccines are recommended for hepatitis A, influenza, meningococcal disease and human papillomavirus, but are not required. More detailed information on immunization schedules can be found here: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/immunization-schedules 

Please provide a copy of your student's up-to-date immunization record to the health office at your child's school upon enrollment, and after receiving new immunizations
