Immunization

No student will be allowed to enroll or continue school attendance without first presenting evidence of compliance with Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon Administrative Rules requiring immunization.

The building administrator/designee is authorized to exclude any student from school attendance for non-compliance with the statutes and rules.  The building administrator/designee will notify the parent or guardian in writing of the reason for the exclusion, stating that the student will continue to be excluded until the student has complied with the requirements.  The notice will also inform the parent that a hearing will be afforded upon request.

The district will comply with the Oregon Department of Human Services, Health Services rules related to the district's immunization registry and the associated tracking and recall systems.  This compliance shall include the waiver of the requirement of consent for release of information from or providing information to and the waiver of issues of confidentiality in regard to immunization records.

The above policy statement affects all students not exempted for religious beliefs, philosophical beliefs or medical reasons.[1]

  1. Any further examination, treatments or assistance necessary.

The certification is not required if the parent or guardian provides a statement to the district that:
