    Immunization Requirement

    Minnesota requires all children entering child care, early childhood programs, and elementary or secondary schools (public or private), have up-to-date immunizations on file with the provider. Children enrolled in SSD 6 ECFE programs will be required to provide a copy of an immunization record for each child enrolled prior to the child attending the program. 

    The school district will follow up on every child enrolled as required by law. You may use the print out from your physician's office or download the student immunization form above to record your child's immunizations. You must bring your child's immunization record the first day of class. Any child who does not have up-to-date immunizations on the first day of class will not be allowed to attend.

    School Census

    If you have moved to our community, we want to ensure you receive information about early childhood screenings, preschool, and kindergarten registrations at the appropriate times. Please complete the school census form so the district can inform you of programs such as:

    • Early Childhood Screening (required by law before kindergarten attendance)
    • School Readiness Programs
    • Community Preschool Registration
