Birth Certificate

The Michigan Missing Children’s Act (MCL 380.1135) requires that you provide a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate when you are enrolling in school or other reliable proof, as determined by the school district, of the student’s identity and age, and an affidavit explaining the inability to produce a copy of the birth certificate.  If you do not meet this requirement within 30 days, the school must notify the local law enforcement agency.

Immunization Requirements

Please refer to the chart below for the required immunizations and their time frame.  Contact Healthy Kids (1-888-988-6300) for details on free health care coverage, including immunizations.  Students must be current with all immunizations required by law or have an authorized waiver from State immunization requirements.  If a student does not have the necessary shots or waivers, the principal may remove the student and/or require compliance with a set deadline.  This is for safety of all students and in accordance with State law.
