MSAD #28 POLICY IMMUNIZATIONS OF STUDENTS

All students who enroll in the school district are required by Maine law to present a certificate of immunization or evidence of immunization or immunity against poliomyelitis, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (chicken pox) and meningococcal meningitis.

Non-immunized students shall not be permitted to attend school unless one of the following conditions are met:

  1.  Parents and guardians will provide written assurance that the child will be immunized, followed by proper documentation within ninety (90) days. This option is available only once to each student during their school career; or

  2.  The parents/guardians provide a physician’s written statement each year that immunizations against one or more diseases may be medically inadvisable (as defined by law/regulation); or

  3.  The parents/guardians state in writing each year that immunization is contrary to their sincere religious or philosophical beliefs.

The Superintendent shall exclude from school and school activities any non-immunized student when there is a danger to the health of others as provided by law.

The Superintendent/designee is directed to develop such administrative procedures as are necessary to carry out this policy and comply with statutory requirements.
