Preschool Health Requirements

  • Dear Families, 

    All students participating in preschool with Ann Arbor Public Schools are expected to provide us with the following medical documentation:

    Before your child's first day of school:

    Your child is required to have at least one of each type of required vaccination before starting school and must be up to date on all vaccinations within 120 days of the child's first day of school.  Alternatively, you can provide the school with a signed waiver from the Washtenaw County Health Department exempting them from vaccination requirements.  The following vaccinations are required for preschool:

    • 4 doses of DTAP (Diptheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis)
    • 4 doses of PCV (Pneumococcal Conjugate)
    • 3 doses of Hib (H. Influenzae type b)
    • 3 doses of Hep B (Hepatitis B)
    • 3 doses of Polio 
    • 1 dose of MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)
    • 1 dose of Varicella (Chickenpox)

    Within 30 days of your child's first day of school:

    A physical examination (health appraisal).  The exam must have occurred within the past 12 months.

    A complete physical exam should include the following:

    • Blood Pressure results
    • Height and Weight measurements
    • Hearing Screening
    • Vision Screening
    • Lead blood test results (blood test must have occurred after age 2)
    • Hemoglobin/Hematocrit blood test results (blood test must be within last 12 months)

    Each family will also complete a full Health History, Nutritional Assessment, TB screen, and Lead Screening at the time of application.  These forms can be found below.

    If any above components were not performed with your child's last physical they may need to be completed seperately.

    Within 90 days of your student's first day of school:

    A dental examination.  The exam must have occurred within the past 12 months.
