All students attending Albuquerque Public Schools must be currently immunized. The requirements at the high school level are 1) diphtheria-tetanus, a series of three plus a booster every ten years, 2) polio (oral) a series of three, 3) rubella. Students new to Manzano are strongly urged to have a doctor's examination.
Over-the-counter medication, including aspirin cannot be given to students. Parents may send a full bottle of Tylenol, etc., to be kept in the Nurse’s office for individual student use. Students taking prescribed medication should inform the nurse. Doctor’s orders must be on file with the Nurse for prescription medications to be taken at school. Routine vision and hearing tests are not done at the high school level; however, students are welcome to come in for vision and hearing tests at scheduled times, if deemed necessary.
