NRCSD Health Services 

Dear Parent/ Guardian,


I am reaching out at this time with an important reminder for the 2024/2025 school year.


The North Rockland Central School District maintains strict compliance with New York State Immunization laws.  New York State Public Health Law, Section 2164 requires that schools do not permit a child to attend school unless the parent provides the school with a certificate of immunization or proof from a physician, nurse practitioner or physician's assistant that the child is in the process of receiving the required immunizations. All health care providers that give immunizations to children are required to enter the immunizations they provide in NYSIIS or NYCIR within 14 days.  Students learning in person or virtually that are not in compliance by day 14 may not attend on day 15, and are required to be reported to the Department of health.  This applies to both the Meningitis vaccine and the TDAP vaccine as well.  Simply stated, if your child is not up to date with all required immunizations, they will not be permitted to attend school after the 14th day of school.


Please reach out to your child’s Health Care Provider now, and inquire about required immunizations.  If you do not have Health Insurance, you can contact the Rockland County Immunization Clinic at (845) 364-2520. You can also contact your child’s current school nurse to find out what immunizations are necessary for the upcoming school year.  I am including a copy of current NYS mandated immunizations, and when they are due.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter, and enjoy the rest of the school year!


Sincerely,

Kathy Varieur, RN
