Welcome to North Cedar Academy!
I am the school Nurse and look forward to meeting your son or daughter. My first and foremost concern is the health and well-being of our students, staff, and the Ladysmith community. NCA continues to follow the COVID-19 guidelines of the CDC, the State of Wisconsin, and the Rusk County Department of Health & Human Services.
The policy of NCA is students who attend this fall must have the COVID-19 Vaccine and 2 boosters. The exception is if your child has a medical, religious, or personal conviction. If you choose to apply for the medical waiver, I need a signed and dated copy from your physician stating this.
It is important you complete all of the necessary health forms included in the welcome packet to ensure your child can be treated in the event of illness or emergency. Please complete the following forms and return them to NCA for review. It is very important to include any allergies, medications, nutrition/dietary restrictions, health and dental concerns, recent surgeries, and any mental health issues. We follow confidentiality protocol closely.
Immunization records are extremely important. The state of Wisconsin has mandated laws for students attending private and public schools to have on record the required vaccines to comply with state law. If you choose to waive (refuse) immunizations due to health, religious, or personal reasons, you must indicate this on the Student Immunization Record - step 4. If the waiver is due to health reasons, a physician must sign the form. I have included the following guidelines and forms:
Please note if a student has incomplete immunizations, students may be excluded from classes if an outbreak of one of these diseases occurs. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 715-532-0201 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Wishing you a healthy and safe summer!
