USD 259 students who are out of compliance with their immunizations will be excluded from school until they receive the proper immunizations.
School nurses have been in contact with parents to inform them that their children can get their immunizations before being excluded.
Immunizations are the most effective means of preventing many serious communicable diseases and are required for school attendance and before- and after-school programs. Families should contact their school nurse for more information.
For 2015-16, there are changes in the Varicella (chicken pox) requirement: Two doses for students grades K – 12. See more information about immunizations.
