Health care deadlines

MMR vaccines: As of July 28, 2019, personal and philosophical exemptions for the MMR vaccine are no longer valid per state law. This change includes students who currently have this type of exemption on file with Spokane Public Schools. The MMR vaccine is a two-shot series, given at least 28 days apart. Students must be fully vaccinated prior to our Oct. 11 immunization exclusion date.

Health care plans and medications: These must be turned in at your student’s school no later than Aug. 23, 2019, for your student to attend school the first day. High schools are open all summer, and the remainder of schools will be open by Aug. 19.
