    Immunization Requirements

    The vaccines required for school attendance are established by the State of Washington. New students must be current in immunizations to attend school. According to state law, students who are out of compliance with immunization requirements must be excluded from school until those conditions are met. Learn more about the state’s immunization requirements on the district immunizations website.
