  2. A child is not denied admission to any school or school facility if the child has not been immunized due to medical reasons if the child has a written statement from the child’s doctor excusing the child from the immunization;
  3. A child or youth determined to be homeless is not denied admission to any school or school facility if the child or youth has not yet been immunized or is unable to produce immunization records due to being homeless; and
  4. Immunization is not required if a qualified physician certifies that administration of the immunization would be in any manner harmful to the child involved.
  •  For ALL Students entering school for the first time (Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and other students from whom there is no health record) - Must be dated after August 1 of the year preceding the year of enrollment.
