Your child is required
to be up to date on all immunizations in order to attend school. If or when it
is found that your child is behind on a vaccination, the nurse will send a
note home. Be sure to check their take-home folder daily. There are many
resources in the community that offer free or reduced-cost vaccination clinics.
Please call the nurse to find out about these opportunities.
If you choose not to vaccinate your child, you must turn in a notarized,
original state-issued affidavit for "Reasons of Conscience" to the

infectious disease (ex: chickenpox, measles, strep throat, pink eye, lice,
