School Year 23-24 required immunizations


Please note that COVID vaccination is not required, but encouraged. PLease follow the links below if you require more information regarding COVID vaccination


If a student is exempt from any required vaccinations, a letter must be submitted to the health office annually at the beginning of the school year. Allowable exemptions include:

  1. A medical exemption is allowed if a physician submits documentation attesting that an immunization is medically contraindicated; and
  2. A religious exemption is allowed if a parent or guardian submits a written statement that immunizations conflict with their sincere religious beliefs.

 Please note that if there is an outbreak of a communicable disease, those students with exemptions may be excluded for the duration of the incubation of that particular illness.



We want to advise you of additional steps that will be taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19 within the school community. These measures follow the guidelines for schools from the CDC and DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education). As knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 evolves, these guidelines may change.


Hand Sanitizer: stations are located throughout the building in common areas, and hallways where school staff are commonly present. Parents are encouraged to discuss the dangers of hand sanitizer if ingested with their child. Parents may opt their child out from the use of hand sanitizer. In this case students should utilize hand washing frequently.


Illness: Parents and guardians must monitor their children prior to school for signs of illness everyday.

Students who are ill should not attend school in-person and get tested. 

Please be sure you are aware of current COVID guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education which is included in the link below:

All medication will be stored and dispensed through the Health Office. This includes over the counter medications and prescription medications. For safety reasons, students should never transport medication to and from school or keep medicine in their possession during the school day. The parent/guardian or an authorized adult are requested to deliver medication to the health office.


If it becomes necessary for a student to take any form of medication at school, a written authorization from the parent, a medication order from a licensed prescriber, and the pharmacy labeled container are required.


Under certain circumstances, in consultation with the school nurse, a student may self-administer asthma inhalers, insulin, or Epi-pens® during the school day after receipt of an updated action plan with consent from their healthcare provider and the parent authorization form.
