Student Health Card Procedure
Every student (K-12) is required to have a Student Health Card on file in the school office. Middle School and High School cards are mailed out to families with their registration paperwork. New students and Malone Elementary students received these cards at open house/orientation meetings.
NOTE: Fill the card out completely on both sides with parent signature.
