    2017-2018 Immunization Requirements:

    • Please review the Immunization Information tab to be sure the vaccination record for your student is up to date.
    • There is a list of locations where low cost vaccinations are being given in the district and around the community on the district website.  Print-outs of those locations, times and costs of upcoming vaccination clinics can be found in the school's front office.
    • If your student has a vaccination exemption form, check to be sure it has not expired.  New exemption forms must be notarized, and can be done so by a school secretary.
