Immunization requirements will be enforced for all students. Students who do not meet the requirements of law will be denied attendance according to state law. Students must submit a Certificate of Immunization or Exemption to attend school. It is your responsibility to communicate with your health care provider and provide information to the school regarding the immunization stats of your child/student.
To comply with state law, one of the following must be provided to the student's school:
A completed Certificate of Immunization. If a student’s Certificate of Immunization is not up to date, the parent, guardian or emancipated student has 14 days to provide documentation that the next required immunization was given or an appointment made to receive the required immunization(s) and submit a written plan for completion of all required immunizations. If the plan is not fulfilled the student shall be expelled or suspended from school according to state law.
A completed Statement of Medical, Religious or Personal Exemption to Immunization Law printed on the reverse side of the Certificate of Immunization and signed every school year.
Students who need to take mediations (over the counter and/or prescription) must go through their school health office. All medications that are to be given at school, must have a signed form that includes the dosing information along with the need for the medication, a doctor's signature and a parent signature to be administered. All medications must be in their original container, prescription medications must be in their container from the pharmacy, with the student's prescription information on the label.
Students with Life-Threatening Allergies or Conditions
If your student has a known life-threatening allergy or condition, you must contact the school district nurse and/or the health tech at your student's building so that the proper paperwork can be completed for your student to have emergency medications at school.
