Ohio State Law 3313.671 requires that a record of the exact dates (month/day/year) of immunizations of each student be on file at the school. By law, a student may be excluded from school on the 15th day of the school year if the school has not received written proof of the required immunizations.

The State of Ohio Legal Immunization Exemptions apply to students who have an Immunization Waiver Form on file prior to the first day of the current academic year. Obtain this form from the building nurse. Unless submitting a waiver for religious or “good cause,” a physician signature is required for medical exemptions. In the event of a communicable disease outbreak, your child may be excluded from school and not allowed to return until such a time that the building nurse, administrators, or in some cases Hamilton County Public Health, allows. There is no guarantee that faculty can provide the same educational experience as in the classroom during the missed time. Students excluded from school during an outbreak are also excluded from participating in any CHCA extracurricular activities or sporting events.
