Required for Kindergarten

  • The Uxbridge Public Schools in accordance with the regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health requires the following information before a student enters school:

    Required immunizations: Immunization records must be submitted to and reviewed by the school nurse prior to school entry

    Exemptions: If there is a medical reason why immunizations are not done, a certificate must be obtained from your physician and forwarded to the school nurse. For a religious exemption, parent/guardian must fill out a Religious Exemption Immunization form or write a note to the school nurse. Exemption certificates or letters must be renewed each school year.

    Parents/guardians should be aware that students who are not immunized due to an exemption or those who are under-immunized will be excluded from school in the event of a disease outbreak.

    Physical examination: A physical exam is required for all new students dated within 12 months prior to the entrance to school or 30 days after school entry, and every 3-4 years after school entrance. Per these regulations documentation of a current physical examination is required for students entering preschool, kindergarten, grades, 4,7,10. If a student is participating in athletics, an annual physical exam is required. However, parents/guardians are encouraged to send a copy of the student’s physical to the nurse annually.

    A student transferring from another school system shall be examined as an entering student. Health records transferred from the student's previous school may be used to determine compliance with this requirement.
