Immunization - It is vitally important for our incoming Kindergarten, and 1st Grade students must have the mandatory immunizations required by the state before the first day of school, August 18th. Section 1003.22 (10a) of the Florida Statutes does not allow kindergarteners to attend school with incomplete immunization documentation. Please do not call our registrar and ask for an extension. She cannot by law allow your child to attend school without the immunization paperwork from your doctor. Please contact your pediatrician to schedule an appointment or contact your local health center for a schedule of free immunizations for families that qualify.
