ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Notification of Exclusion Based on Immunization Status

There is no longer a religious exemption to the requirement that children be vaccinated against measles and other disease to attend either:

• Public, private or parochial school (for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade), or
• Child day care settings.

Children who are attending child day care or public, private or parochial school, and who had a religious exemption to required immunizations, must now receive the first age appropriate dose to attend or remain in school or child day care.

Parents and guardians of all children who do not have their required immunizations are encouraged to have them and receive the first dose as soon as possible. The deadline for obtaining first dose vaccinations for children attending school in the fall is 14 days from the first day of school. Within 30 days of the first day of school, parents and guardians of such children must show they have made appointments for all required followup doses.

If you have any questions regarding this new legislation, please contact your child’s building principal for more details.
