Notice to Parents Regarding Religious Exemptions

Please note new regulation beginning in August of 2018

Notice to parents regarding Religious Exemptions:

The State of Massachusetts has notified us of a change with the Policy for Religious Exemptions regarding a child immunization status.  If you have this Religious Exemption on your child’s health record, please note that effective with the 2018-19 school year any child that has a Religious Exemption must renew their status annually.  An annual renewal means that parents/guardians must write and sign a new religious exemption.  All religious exemptions should be dated by the signing parent/guardian to allow for monitoring of annual renewals each school year.   Annual renewal of exemptions should occur at the start of each school year.
