WMYA Health & Immunization Requirements

WMYA requires that the following School Health Entry Form be filled out and signed by your Health Care Provider.

WMYA also requires Scoliosis test results (6th grade and up) in accordance with Section 1003.22(4), Florida Statutes. May be marked as “postural assessment” on the DH 3040. If it is not included, there is no specific format for this requirement; however, it can be in written form and signed by a registered nurse, doctor, or qualified staff (who has been trained appropriately).
