Nursing and health office forms for Parents/Guardians

APS Health Forms


Here you will find the forms you need if your child has a health condition (asthma, allergies, etc) requiring medication at school. We can only give meds with a provider's order. You will also find forms here regarding immunization requirements and exemptions.


General Health Office Rules/Guidelines

New Mexico law requires all students to be currently immunized or in process before entrance into school. Proof of vaccination or exemption will be required at registration.


The school nurse should be informed of any health concern, medical diagnosis or medications a student is taking.  Any student who is ill or injured is to be seen in the health office, and the nurse or health assistant will coordinate with the parent to determine whether or not the student needs to go home. Students will only be released to a person listed on their emergency card after verification with a picture ID.


Prescription and over the counter medications can be stored in the health office with the proper paperwork.  Medication forms can be printed from the FORMS section of this page.
