School Nurse

Meet the School Nurse

Hello, my name is Melissa Teuton and I am the part-time nurse at Olympic Hills Elementary. I’m here to make sure that your student is safe and healthy while at school. My nursing experience includes twenty years working in surgical services. I am so excited to be part of the team that will help your child learn and grow. I am passionate about preventative health care.

Prepare for Your Student’s Health at School

Washington state law requires that school staff and parents plan together for the safe care of their child throughout the school day.

Please inform me if your child:

Flu Shots Given In the Fall

Protect yourself and your community from the flu. SPS partners with Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to provide annual flu shots to students (ages 4 and older), staff and community members.
Most forms of insurance (including Apple Health and Medicaid) and cash or check are accepted.

Immunization Information

To attend school students must present a Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS). Our district requires that immunization information on the CIS comes from a medical provider. WA State Immunization laws state that the student is:

  • Fully immunized or
  • Be in process of getting immunized
  • Has a completed Certificate of Exemption

As of July 28, 2019, Personal exemptions are no longer accepted in Washington State for the measles-MMR vaccine. Students who were previously in compliance with a Certificate of Exemption for MMR will now be listed as out of compliance with state law.

You can obtain a copy of your own or your child’s (under age 18) immunization record located in the Washington Immunization Information System (WAIIS) Instructions here .

Students can receive immunizations through their school-based health center or at a school-based health center located nearby. King County School Health

Other Immunization Resources

School-Based Health Center (SBHC)

Students have access to additional health services through the school-based health center located at this or a nearby school.

These services are paid for through generous tax payer support of the Seattle Families, Education, Preschool, and Promise Plan

Services include immunizations, sports physicals, prescriptions, reproductive healthcare, mental health counseling, lab tests, and nutrition counseling.

Families must enroll their student to receive most services. Students can enroll themselves for confidential health services.
