Seasonal Flu Guidelines for Parents

Each family of Incoming Freshmen and Transfer Students receives a mailing containing various forms and instructions.  This mailing contains a green index card (which is not available on this link), plus the Medical and Immunization forms which are also available below if needed. (If needed, additional green index card can be picked up in the SFP medical office). For entrance to SFP every student needs an immunization form due upon acceptance and a complete medical exam due September. Medical forms must be signed, dated, and stamped by a doctor. Please keep copies.
For student athletes: Medical exams need to be dated on or after June 1ST and handed in before tryouts. Please allow ample time for Nurse’s clearance.
