State law requires students attending school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. You are encouraged to get your child vaccinated early to avoid the end-of-summer vaccination rush. Getting your child vaccinated protects your child’s health and that of the community. If necessary, please make an appointment to get your child vaccinated before the first day of school. Remember, students cannot attend school without the appropriate documentation for the required vaccines.
Be sure your child is up to date on all immunizations. You can access the 2023-24 immunization form links below.
These forms apply to all IDEA Public School students.

If there is a positive student or staff case on campus, staff and families are notified.
