State law requires all students to be immunized unless you waive the right for immunization due to religious or medical reasons. In the event of waiver due to religious or medical reasons, submission of a notarized letter to the school nurse and signed by you and your child’s physician is required.
Parents must submit forms or waivers to the main office and should retain copies in the event the information is requested again. Students without complete, up-to-date immunization forms will receive letters requesting up-to-date records.
Free immunizations for D.C. residents can be provided through the D.C. Immunization Program located at 6323 Georgia Avenue, NW, Suite 305, Washington, DC 20011. Please, phone (202)576-7130 for more information.
Please note: Upon accruing unexcused absences for missing health information, you and your child will be subject to the Attendance Policy of this handbook and D.C. Truancy Law.
