Provide Health Records

1. Immunization record

Official record must be submitted. The student’s complete updated immunization record must be submitted. Immunization records can’t be obtained from previous schools. The district will not release any immunization information on students. Immunization information is available at the Oakland County Health Department at 248.858.1280. Michigan law requires children to be up to date on all required immunizations on or before the first day of school. Children who have valid medical reasons that prevent or delay them from receiving a vaccine may submit a waiver, signed by the child's physician, which explains the medical issue and vaccine involved. However, any parent/guardian who wishes to waive vaccines for non-medical reasons are now REQUIRED to receive vaccine education from their local health department. This rule applies to all children entering childcare, kindergarten and 7th grade, or newly enrolled in the district after January 1, 2015.
