In order to attend school, students must show they are in compliance with Minnesota State Immunization Requirements. A copy of the student's current immunization record must be on file with the school.
Students may receive legal exemption from the immunization law for medical reasons, please provide a signed medical providers order. For conscientiously held beliefs, families must provide a notarized exemption form to the health office in order to fulfill state requirements. Exemption documentation can be submitted on the immunization record as noted above. A new exemption form may be required when immunization requirements change.
