ACPS School Health Requirements for the 2020-21 Academic Year

Health Requirements
  • Before the start of each academic year, families need to make sure all necessary medical documentation has been submitted to their school registrar.

    All new students to ACPS, whether registering in pre-K, kindergarten or joining from another school division, are required to supply evidence of a physical examination within 12 months from the first day of school, currently September 8, 2020 and a current record of immunizations.

    All returning students should be up-to-date with age appropriate immunizations. Records must be submitted. Check here to see a list of required immunizations. 


    We are aware that these requirements may be challenging to fulfill this year due to COVID-19.

    However for the safety and well-being of our students these requirements from the Commonwealth of Virginia remain unchanged for the upcoming academic year.

    Listed below are additional resources providing physical examinations and immunizations in the event that you do not have a healthcare provider or if your healthcare provider is unavailable. 


    Your school nurse is also an excellent resource and can advise you if you need further assistance. Find your school nurse’s contact details on your school’s website.

    More resources to help you connect with affordable healthcare options can be found on the ACPS School Nurses and Health Services webpage. 

    ACPS is establishing a portal that will allow you to upload your documents directly to your school registrar. You will be notified once this is established.
