District Procedure for Ensuring Compliance
- Upon registering your child for the upcoming school year, students will receive a notice specifying the vaccinations that the student will need for the coming year and the district-compliance date of September 1st. This letter is sent on June 15, July 15, and August 15. It must be completed by your child's physician and returned to our main office.
- On September 15th, all noncompliant families will receive a letter informing them of their status as well as the deadline of October 15. An example letter is shown here.
- On October 14th, all noncompliant families will receive a notification that their student will be excluded from school until they are in compliance with state immunization requirements.
- After a student is excluded from school, questions will be directed to the building Principal or his/her designee (school nurse or Assistant Principal). A return to school will only be granted once the school's nurse has received, reviewed, and validated the paperwork and a formal notification has been sent by the building Principal or his/her designee.
