Important Notice for Fall 2017 Enrollment Regarding Immunization Requirements

June 2017

Dear Families,

Whenever children are brought into group settings, there is a chance for diseases to spread.  According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, students must follow state vaccine laws in order to attend school.  These laws are the minimum standard to help prevent disease outbreaks in school settings.  The best way to protect your child from serious diseases is to follow the recommended vaccination schedule at

In order to be in compliance with state law, your child must be completely vaccinated prior to the start of school on August 28, 2017.  Over the summer months, please review your child(s) medical records and schedule necessary doctor appointments early to ensure compliance with state law.

Parents and guardians choosing to decline vaccines must obtain a certified non-medical waiver from the Kent County Health Department.  Read more about waivers at

Thank you.
