The Nurse/Health Assistant in each building annually reviews the immunization records provided by the parent or previous school to ensure the proper immunization of all students in accordance with Ohio law. If it is determined that the student needs additional immunizations, it is expected that immunizations are obtained immediately upon notification from the Health Office. If the student is found to be out of compliance with Ohio law, the student will be excluded after 14 days into the school year per Ohio law. Missed school days for immunization non-compliance are counted as unexcused absences.
In Ohio, a parent/guardian has the right to request an exemption from immunization to one or more vaccinations based on medical, religious or philosophical reasoning. The form is available below, and must be completed each school year that the child is enrolled.
