Immunizations – No Shots, No School
In order for students to enroll or remain enrolled in elementary or secondary schools, Minnesota state law (Minnesota Statute 121A.15) requires documentation of required immunizations or written proof of exemption. Students will not be allowed to start school or remain in school until the required immunization history or a signed legal exemption is provided to the district. For more information, visit our Health Services page.
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.
