Immunizations are important to keep your child and those around them healthy at school. Vaccines are recommended throughout childhood.  Specifically, there are vaccinations required before Kindergarten and prior to entering the 7th Grade. 

If you do not plan to have your child immunized for medical reasons or personal beliefs please submit a notarized conscientious objection form or documentation from your physician indicating medical exemption.

Hearing and Vision Screening

Minnesota Department of Health recommends that all children receive a hearing and vision screening annually from kindergarten through third grade and in grades five, eight, and eleven. If vision or hearing difficulties are detected at screening, you will be notified by the District Nurse.  If you have concerns regarding your child's hearing or vision, please let the District Nurse know.
