The Puyallup School District Health Services team believes that optimal health is essential for maximum utilization of educational opportunities; therefore, the health status of the child bears a direct relationship to the quality of his or her educational achievement.
We provide a student-centered, collaborative approach to learning and health in partnership with students' families and the school community that will propel us towards our goal of supporting student health and academic success by contributing to a healthy and safe school environment.
Washington state law requires all students attending public schools to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, measles, mumps, hepatitis B, varicella and rubella before registering for school. For more information about immunization requirements, please contact your student's school nurse or the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department at (253)-649-1412.
