Documentary proof of immunizations must be presented to school personnel at the time of enrollment. Immunizations must be current for the age of the child. Please keep the school nurse informed of any new immunizations your children receive so the health records will be current. Students who are not up to date on immunizations will not be allowed to attend school. Children who are not adequately vaccinated against preventable diseases will be excluded from school in the event of a disease outbreak. The following is the immunization requirement for school enrollment (Pinal County Department of Health):
- Arizona state law requires that a child, upon first entering school, must have a record of immunization against preventable childhood diseases — diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, measles, varicella, and rubella.
- A waiver or deferral, in part or in full, will be granted in medical or religious cases, or for personal beliefs. In all cases, parents must provide either a record of immunizations or request a waiver.
