Immunization Exclusion Day Information
The Immunization Exclusion Day for 2020-21 is February 17, 2021.
All children who are not up to date with their immunizations will be excluded from being physically in the building.
We know that with the COVID-19 protocols in place, getting your child/children up to date with their immunizations may require some advanced planning. You may even be hesitant to go to a doctor's office. We, also, know that with the current distant learning your student is not physically in the building. We do want you to know that when public schools return to in school learning at any capacity and if your child/children are not current with their immunizations they will not be able to be physically in the building.
When this happens, you would have several options available to you:
- become current with immunizations.
- remain in CDL.
- notify us if you are exempt from the immunization schedule with an official document.
We'd like to make you aware that between now and exclusion day you will be receiving several communications from either us in the office, from the District, or from Washington County. If you are current and you still receive a notification, then please let us know so we can align our communication to better match your child's immunization records.
Inclement Weather Information During CDL
All classes and school schedules will continue on time in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL), even if district facilities are closed due to inclement weather. In other words, we will not have any "snow days" in CDL.
If district facilities are closed, any on-site classes/programs including Limited In-Person Instruction (LIPI) will be canceled. All daytime and evening activities/events also will be canceled. For more information, please visit the Inclement Weather Information webpage.
