The goal of the Health department is to provide health services to students and staff who are ill, as well as to promote health and safety for all our students. Please feel freel to contact one of our nurses, or your building secretary, for answers to questions you might have regarding your student's health needs.

Health Screening Information
All kindergarten and third grade students are asked to provide proof of a vision screening. All students entering 7th grade have to show proof of a Tdap booster after age 10 years or have a medical or religious exemption. Iowa law requires that any child who is entering kindergarten or ninth grade must provide a Certificate of Dental Screening. The purpose of this law is to improve the oral health of Iowa’s children. Grinnell Public Health holds dental screenings on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Services offered along with the dental screening include assistance in obtaining dental services, as well as outreach information for uninsured or underinsured children.
Please download the following health forms for your student's needs. Proper form submission is required in order for our staff to best serve you.
