A certified copy of the child's birth certificate
is required at the time of registration, along with proof of residence, a social security number, a valid immunization record
signed by a healthcare professional, and a comprehensive physical exam
dated within twelve months of the child’s entry into the public school system. All original documents will be returned to the parent, and while a social security number is requested, no child will be denied entrance to school because they do not have a social security number.
immunization records must document three doses of DTP
with one dose received after the fourth birthday; three doses of a polio vaccine
with one dose received after the fourth birthday; two doses of the measles vaccine
(one dose received at 12 months of age or older and the second prior to entering kindergarten); one dose of a rubella vaccine
received at 12 months of age or older (usually given as MMR); one dose of mumps vaccine
received at 12 months of age or older (usually given as MMR); and three doses of the hepatitis B vaccine
. All susceptible children (those who have not had chicken pox) born after January 1, 1997 are also required to have a dose of varicella
not earlier than the age of 12 months.
