No Shots, No School. Starting in the 2001 school year, Independent School District 112 began enforcing the “No Shots, No School” policy. Students who are not up to date on their immunizations will not be allowed to start school until they receive the proper booster shots and provide the school with documentation of these vaccines. Parents may choose to decline immunizations for their child, for medical reasons or conscientiously held beliefs, by getting a legal exemption from Minnesota school law.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s vaccines, please contact your physician or a Southwest Christian school nurse.
Any student that will take a non-prescription medication during school hours must have a Medication Authorization Form filled out and signed by the parent/guardian prior to medication dispensing. Be sure to include child’s name, name of medication, amount to be taken, and time to be given.
Prescription medications need a physician’s signature prior to medication dispensing. All medications must be sent to school in the original pharmacy container with the student’s name printed on the label as well as the medication and dosage to be administered.
If your child carries an inhaler/Epi-pen with him/her (in backpack, desk, or locker), a written permission form (including student, parent, and physician signature) must be kept on file in the health office. If there are any questions or concerns please contact the school nurse.
