Our schools participate in the "No Shots, No School" program. All students are required to provide proof of immunization, or appropriate documentation exempting the student from such immunization, and such other data necessary to ensure that the student is free from any communicable diseases, as a condition of enrollment. If your child is missing any immunizations, please make an appointment with your healthcare provider to have all immunizations completed before school begins.
WHO NEEDS VACCINES, WHEN?
Your child’s immunization record must be on file with the school before your child may attend. When you register for Kindergarten, you will be asked to provide immunization information, a medical exemption form or a notarized non-medical exemption form. You will be asked to provide a copy of this information to the District Office when you register. Additional immunizations or an updated exemption form are required in seventh grade.
WHICH IMMUNIZATIONS ARE REQUIRED
For the safety of all children, Minnesota law requires written proof that your child has been immunized against seven diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP), measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and polio. Children entering Kindergarten must also be immunized for varicella (chicken pox) and a series of three hepatitis B shots. When you register for kindergarten, you will be asked to provide immunization information, a medical exemption form or a notarized non-medical exemption form. You will be asked to provide a copy of this information to the District Office when you register; please submit the information before August 1. Students entering seventh grade also require a Tdap booster and Meningococcal immunization or an updated exemption form if not previously indicated on their exemption.
Download the Minnesota Department of Health guide or consult your family doctor as additional boosters may be required.
Your child cannot attend school until the immunization information is updated. If your child has a medical reason for not receiving immunizations, a signed statement from your physician or clinic is needed. Families who object to immunizations must provide a notarized declination form. If you have any questions, please contact your school health office.
ALERT US REGARDING OTHER HEALTH ISSUES
If your child has any allergies, medical conditions or individual and/or emergency healthcare plans, please let your child's health office know that information.
