Immunizations – Are your kids ready?
In accordance with MN School Immunization Law 121A.15 and the Wayzata Public Schools Policy #521, the district requires that student immunization records be up-to-date, actively in progress, or a signed legal exemption is provided to the district prior to starting and remaining enrolled in school. Refer to this document as a guide to determine which vaccines are required to enroll a child in early childhood programs and school (online, home school, public or private).
Medications at School
All medications, both prescribed and Over-The-Counter (OTC), administered at school requires a medical order from a person who is a licensed authorized prescribing practitioner (physician, physician’s assistant, dentist, podiatrist, osteopath or psychiatrist). Please contact your school health office if you have questions. For more information, visit our Health Services page.
To ensure that your child is assigned to the correct bus and stop, your correct address must be on file with the Wayzata Public Schools Welcome Center. If your family has moved over the summer or is new to the district, please contact the Welcome Center at 763-745-5240 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students/families enrolled by August 12th will receive their busing information via email the week of August 22nd and no later than August 26th.
If your child is transported to or from a different address for childcare before or after school you must complete a Day Care Transportation form.
The Welcome Center is located at 295 Highway 55, Medina, MN 55340.
Please contact the Welcome Center with any questions at 763-745-5240 or email@example.com.
This school supply list has been compiled by the East Middle School staff to guide parents in purchasing supplies for their child.
