Immunizations

 Immunization Requirements 
The State of Minnesota requires that all students receive mandated immunizations to enroll or remain enrolled in a Minnesota Public School. Parents are required to provide the school with documentation indicating that the student has received required immunizations before the new school year for Kindergarten and 7th grade students. Parents may file a medical exemption signed by their health care provider, or a conscientious objection signed by a parent and notarized.
Please do not assume that I have record of immunizations your child received at the doctor's office. It is the parent's responsibility to send the record to my office.
