Immunization Requirements

State law requires that students in all grades must have documentation for required vaccines. Students entering kindergarten and 7th grade will need to update their immunizations and will be excluded from school if not in compliance. Children enrolled or enrolling in child care or early childhood programs (that meet at least once a week for at least six weeks during the year) must also provide proof of immunizations or have a legal exemption. Medical and conscientious exemptions are allowed under the law.

The student and early childhood immunization forms are located in the Required Forms section above. Record your child’s immunizations or exemptions on this form. For more information, contact Health Services staff.
