IMMUNIZATIONS requirements:

Students in grades 7-9 are required to have a specific number of doses of a variety of immunizations on file in the health office to attend school.
The vaccine types and doses vary according to grade.

Immunization requirements

One exception is allowed at this time:
Medical exemption- the student’s medical provider must verify, each year, what vaccines they are exempt from, and why they should be considered exempt from this vaccine(s).

In the event that there is an outbreak of a vaccine preventable illness in your child’s school, your child will be required to remain out of school, for their health, until 14 days after the last reported case of illness.


Students are required to participate in physical education. If your child has a medical condition, injury or illness preventing them from participation, an excuse from their medical provider is required.
If a long term, or permanent modification is needed, the provider should complete the physical education medical form.
The school health office may only excuse a student from physical education for one (1) day without a physician’s order.

Fever- if your child has had a fever, they should remain home from school until they have been fever free for 24 hours- without medication. This allows for the possibility of return of the fever, and gives the body time to rest and repair before returning to school, and possible exposure to other illnesses in a weakened state.

Vomiting/diarrhea- any child that has either of these in the evening or early morning, should not come to school that morning. If there is an underlying medical condition that is the cause of either of these problems, please contact your school’s health office.


Any food restrictions and related medications should be reported to the school’s health office directly, and as soon as possible. This includes food allergies, medical conditions, ie celiac, religious restrictions, or any other factors affecting food intake. Please have the medical provider complete the Diet Prescription Form.
