• Students who attend school in New York State must be immunized against polio, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), measles, rubella and Hepatitis B (now required of all students entering Kindergarten), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and varicella.

    Attention parents of 12th grade students:  New York State mandates that every school aged student be properly immunized in order to attend school.  On October 26, 2015 the NYS Public Health Law Section 2164 was amended to require children entering 12th grade to receive an adequate dose or doses of the vaccine against the meningococcal disease. Please contact your child's health care provider in order to receive further information and arrange for any required immunizations.  Please forward a copy of your child's updated immunization records to the Health Office. 

    New York State Law Section 66-1.3 (7) (c)-Requirement for School Admission permits medical exemption to required immunizations if the parent provides a certificate from a physician, licensed to practice medicine in New York State, that one or more of the required immunizations may be detrimental to the child's health.

    If your child is medically exempt from any immunizations, please have your provider fill out the form below. Once the form is complete, send a copy to the health office. Then the WCSD Medical Director will review.
