The North Syracuse Central School District follows New York State Department of Health School Immunization Requirements. As of June, 13, 2019, New York State Immunization law no longer allows for religious exemptions for immunizations. The new law is effective immediately and the North Syracuse Central School District will not allow students to attend school without required immunizations.

The District will not allow students to participate in any summer programs or continue enrollment in September if they are not immunized as required by law. For the 2019-2020 school year only, the law allows previously unvaccinated children to attend school as long as you can demonstrate that your child has received at least the first dose in each required immunization series and has age appropriate appointments scheduled to complete the series according to recommended immunization schedules.
Documentation of your child’s immunization will be required prior to continued participation in North Syracuse Central School District programs or enrollment after July 1, 2019.
