Within 30 days of admission to school in the fall, ALL new students must present evidence that they have received at least the first dose of each type of vaccine required for their grade level. Continuing students must meet the age and grade level requirements set by the state. Students in grades K-8 who have not received the required vaccinations will be EXCLUDED from school. Waivers are available for health, religious or personal conviction reasons. However, in the event of an outbreak of any vaccine- preventable disease, students not completely immunized against that disease may be excluded from school to prevent further spread of the disease.
Parents are urged to have their school-aged children (including those in middle and high school) fully immunized BEFORE the start of the school year.
School immunization requirements can be found here and on the Wisconsin Immunization Program site here.
Immunization forms are available (reach out to Student services). Immunization information can be entered on-line. Parents can access immunization records for their children from the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). For more information about WIR access, click here.
