immunization compliance

Despite everything going on, we will still be ensuring that all students are up-to-date on their vaccinations. We go by CDC guidelines. If you have questions, please contact health office staff, or go to the following CDC link.

We understand this chart may be difficult to understand, please contact us with questions or if you need guidance. If your child has fallen behind at some point during childhood and needs to "catch-up" on immunizations, contact us. We can guide you to the catch up schedule provided by the CDC.

Ensure your child's latest immunization documentation has been sent to us by either uploading on parentvue, emailing us, or dropping off at front office.

If you wish to not vaccinate your child based on religious beliefs or medical reasons, please go to NMDOH website for instruction on how to apply for exemption status.

 

Flu Vaccinations: Now more than ever, we recommend staying up-to-date on flu vaccination. When they become available with your child's primary care provider, please get your child vaccinated.
