New Student Registration - La Center School District
ATTENTION! NEW IMMUNIZATION RULES
WA State schools have changed the way they collect immunization records and comply with immunization rules. The new changes took effect beginning with the 2020-21 school year.
- Must be up to date on immunizations
- Must be in conditional status
- Must have valid exemptions prior to the first day of classes even if school starts up virtually.
If your child is up to date on immunizations and has been enrolled in the district prior to August 1st, no action is necessary.
Effective August 1, 2020, these three major changes went into effect:
- All new immunization records from students need to be medically verified.
- The definition of “conditional status” has been clarified.
- The Tdap vaccine requirement for 6th graders has been changed to a 7th grade requirement.
- There will no longer be a 30 day grace period to provide immunization records.
Details of the changes and definitions can be found at:
