School Health & Immunization Requirements

To enter school, parents must present a signed or stamped immunization medical record from a physician or clinic. Students are required to meet all state immunization requirements. Students who have not yet completed the immunization series are allowed to attend school only on condition that they are in progress and up-to-date in the sequence of required immunizations.
