Immunization Requirements
IMMUNIZATIONS AND HEALTH
CONDITIONS FOR KINDERGARTEN
ROUND UP
We are governed by state mandated
requirements regarding immunizations, not
district rules. By law, students are to be as up to
date medically feasible with complete shot
records or current exemptions.
If a student has a health condition that I need to
know about, please see me prior to the first day
of the school year to have things ready.
