Students need up-to-date vaccinations

            Kansas’ law requires students to be vaccinated for a variety of childhood diseases prior to attending school each year. Many of these are timed prior to pre-school and kindergarten while another group of vaccinations have to be taken prior to seventh grade. More complete information is available at http://www.kdheks.gov/immunize/download/Immunization_Requirements_for_the_2018-2019_School_Year_Cheat_Sheet.pdf.

            Enrollment is not completed in USD 308 until proof of vaccinations is provided, therefore students will not be able to attend classes. Families also may provide proof of a medical or religious exemption in lieu of the vaccinations, but state regulation requires the exemptions to be filed annually.
