Kindergarten: An oral health exam by May 31.


First grade: By California State law, all children entering the first grade are required to have a certificate of a CHDP (Child Health & Disability Prevention) health examination on file at the school in which they enroll. The school nurse works to ensure compliance with the mandates, reviews each child’s status, collects data, and informs appropriate staff of any information relevant to the child’s learning experience. The appropriate form is available at your child’s school site.


(The CHDP finds health problems early, answers questions, and links people with treatment, education, and support services when needed. Both Medi-cal and non Medi-cal students are eligible to receive periodic preventive health services/health assessment. CHDP Program is a Service of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services Clinics.)

Grades K, 2, 5, 8, and 10: Hearing screening (provided at school).

Did You Know?
Head lice are small insects that do not have wings. They crawl very fast, but do not jump, swim, or fly. They live on the hair on the head and feed on the blood through the skin on the scalp. They lay eggs called ”nits” in the hair near the scalp and live for about 30 days. The nits hatch in 7 – 10 days.


Anyone can get lice. The primary way to spread lice is thru head to head contact; or sharing hair ties, headbands, hats, coats, scarves, brushes, combs, or helmets.
