Health Screenings

Per Kentucky regulation, JCPS Health Services is required to offer various screenings to students. Schools will be contacted to schedule a screening date and will be supplied all the information needed. Nonconsent forms are sent to all parents and should be completed if they do not wish for their child to participate. The JCPS Health Services Department will notify parents if their child fails a screening or if the student could not be tested for some reason. 


JCPS will be holding clinics to offer athletic or school physicals, including immunizations from June 5–June 16.

Please preregister to attend here: School Physical Clinics.

The following documents should be completed, signed by the parent/guardian, and brought to the clinic. Students who are due immunization updates can receive these at the clinics. Required childhood vaccines will be available for students. Required childhood vaccines include MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), Varicella (Chickenpox), DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis), Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis), Td (Tetanus, Diphtheria), Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, MenACWY (Meningitis), and IPV (Polio). COVID-19 vaccine will also be available for those who are due booster doses or who want to start the series. 

If you have any questions about these vaccines or your child's immunization status, please call your school nurse or the JCPS Health Services office at (502) 485-3387 to speak with health service staff.
