Immunizations

Immunizations

Washington state requires children in schools to be immunized against serious communicable diseases. Vaccines help protect all students and adults from many life-threatening diseases.

You will need to bring proof that your child is immunized when you register for school. Students must have proof of immunization or an exemption form on file with the school in order to attend school. 

Students with incomplete immunization records, will been placed under “Conditional Status” for immunization compliance. Families have a 30 day grace period from the date of the student’s enrollment to provide documentation of the required immunizations or an appropriate Certificate of Exemption waiver. Effective July 28, 2019 WA State removed the personal exemptions option for the MMR vaccination requirement. Documentation of vaccination, or a medical or religious exemption waiver will be required for all students.
