Immunizations

Maine law requires that children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade complete the following immunizations before attending school: DPT or DTaP: 5 doses (4 if the fourth is given after the fourth birthday) Polio (IPV): 4 doses (3 if the third is given after the fourth birthday) MMR: 2 doses Varicella (Chicken Pox): 1 dose Immunizations are required unless the student is exempted for medical (requires a note from a doctor) or philosophical reasons (requires yearly written statement from parent/legal guardian). Under-immunized and unimmunized students may be excluded from school in case of an outbreak of a disease for which the student lacks immunizations. Questions concerning these requirements may be directed to the school nurse. If your child receives immunization updates during the school year, please bring a copy of the updates to the school nurse for inclusion in your child’s health record. 

Non-immunized students are not permitted to attend school unless the parent/guardian provides a written statement from a physician that immunization against one or more diseases may be inadvisable or the parent/guardian provides a written statement that immunization is contrary to their religious, moral or philosophical beliefs. The Superintendent and/or public health officials may exclude non-immunized students from school if there is a health threat to the student or others. Questions concerning these requirements may be addressed to the principal or school nurse.
