In order to safeguard the school community from the spread of certain communicable diseases and recognition that prevention is a means of combating the spread of disease, the Board of Education requires the immunization of pupils against certain disease in accordance with State statue and rules of the New Jersey State Department of Health and Senior Services.
A pupil should not knowingly be admitted or retained in school if the parent has not submitted acceptable evidence of the child’s immunization, according to schedules specified in N.J.A.C. 8:57-4, Immunizations of Pupils in School. However, a child may be admitted to school on a provisional basis in accordance with the requirements outlined in N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.5 and regulation 5320.
Medical and religious exemptions to immunizations shall be in accordance with the requirements as outlined in N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.3 and 4.4.
