K-12 Immunization Requirements
Santa Rosa Academy upholds California Immunization laws that require all students enrolling in school to be fully vaccinated. Senate Bill 277 requires all California children who attend private or public schools to be fully vaccinated beginning July 1, 2016 regardless of their parents’ personal or religious beliefs, unless they have a medical exemption. To read more about such laws, visit http://www.shotsforschool.org/
The following immunizations are required for school enrollment by the State of California. All immunizations must be complete or current, meaning students have completed the requirements and they are not yet due for another dose. During the enrollment process, an official record of the student’s immunization record must be presented as verification of immunizations. This record can be a California Yellow Immunization Card, a medical record from the physician or an official school record. The record must be signed or stamped by the physician or by a school official.
If you have any questions, please contact the Health Office at x.1111.
Medications at school:
Each student who is required to take medication at school (prescription or over the counter) must have written parent and physician permission on file, as well as, provide the medication to the health office in the original, labeled container. The student may be assisted by the school nurse or other designated school personnel if all the policy parameters are met. Please review our general medication policy, and complete our medication authorization form and return it to the Health Office, if your child needs assistance to take medication during the school day.
Pursuit to California Ed Codes 49423 and 49423.1 and Santa Rosa Academy board policy, students may carry and self-administer only auto-injectable epinephrine and/or inhaled asthma medication if the school receives the appropriate written authorization from the physician and parent/guardian.
