Any student who has not submitted proof of immunization will not be allowed to attend school. The only way a child can be excused from this directive is if a parent files with the district an exception for religious reasons, or if a physician signs the immunization certificate that the immunization is not medically advisable.

Parents can make arrangements with their doctor or the free clinic which is held every Monday at Pennsylvania Department of Health. The Health Department asks that parents bring the child's up-to-date immunization record with them. Proof of complete immunization must be returned to the child's school nurse
