Good health is an essential part of effective schools and basic to the learning process. Our health professionals enhance not just your child’s learning but his or her potential to live a healthy and productive life as an adult.
We will notify parents of continuing students by mail if your child needs additional immunizations before the new school year. Arizona requires students to complete all required immunizations before school starts. Students who cannot provide proof of required immunizations will not be allowed to attend school or ride the bus on the first day. Immunization updates can be turned into the schools at the same times and places as the registration packets.
- Medication must be in their original, properly labeled containers. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label, as this serves as the doctor’s order.
- A signed consent form must accompany medication from the parent giving specific directions for use. Information must include the name of medication, amount to be given, time to be given, duration of request (dates) and reason for request.
Dental Program for Kids
The UCHC Dental Program for Kids is pleased to offer dental services for students in the Altar Valley School District. We are able to provide screenings, examinations, cleanings, oral hygiene instructions, sealants, treatment for decay, and other dental problems.
Our mission is to make dental care available to everyone, giving special consideration to those who may not have adequate dental coverage. We have been serving school districts for over five years and would like to invite your child to have a positive dental experience with us!
Getting started is easy! If a dental provider is not currently seeing your child, please download the dental registration forms or fill them out online. We will then schedule a time for your child to be seen on the school site, which limits their time away from class and the parents’ time away from work.
Even if your child is already active with our program, we are required to have completed and signed consent forms for each school year. If you have any questions, please call (520) 407.5617.
Together, we can make a difference in your child’s life!
