It is important for parents to understand the immunization requirements. Minnesota Statute, Section 121A.15 states "...no person over two months old may be allowed to enroll or remain enrolled in any elementary or secondary school..." without proof that he/she has received the immunizations appropriate for their age or have a legal medical or conscientious exemption. A parent/guardian may file a medical exemption signed by a health care provider or a conscientious exemption signed by the parent/guardian and must be notarized. These will be kept on file
at the school.

The Student Immunization Form can be used to document your child's immunizations or exemption to immunizations.
Please be sure to update your child's health file by sending written verification each time he or she has received another immunization.
