The North Syracuse Central School District follows New York State Department of Health School Immunization Requirements. If you are unsure about what immunizations are required, click here for 2020-2021 New York State Immunization Requirements for School Entrance/Attendance.
The New York State Department of Health is not issuing exceptions for immunizations because of COVID-19. The Department's stance continues to be that students missing vaccine doses for any reason must comply with Public Health Law Section 2164 requirements. Children entering or attending school in New York State, including distance learning, must comply with said requirements.
Please note that students not meeting ALL immunization requirements will not be allowed to attend school (in person or remote) beyond 14 days at the commencement of the school year (September 24, 2020) or their date of entry, without proper evidence that immunizations have been satisfied.
Please contact your health care provider to ensure your child is fully immunized. More information may be found on the New York State Department of Health website.
Parents can also contact their child's school health office nurse.
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, 2020.
