Physical Exam and Immunizations
 
If you have a student coming from out of the country, homeschool or private school, 1) you must provide a current up to date immunization record on the Tennessee Department of Health Certificate of Immunization form PRIOR to registration. You can get immunization changed to the Tennessee form by using the Rutherford County Health Dept website. It can be submitted online, and they will update it for you (see below). 2) You must turn in a proof of a health physical exam for your child within 30 days of registration.  After this, your child must be excluded from school per Rutherford County policy. If your child has had one within the last calendar year you can submit it. You can bring it to the clinic, email to [email protected], fax it:  ATTENTION SCHOOL NURSE 615-904-3886 include child's name and DOB.
