In accordance with New Hampshire laws and regulations, the
school district shall require that every parent or guardian
of a child to be admitted or enrolled in school provide to
the school prior to the child's admittance, documentary proof
of acceptable immunization of the child.
Conditional Enrollment: A child may be admitted under
"Conditional Enrollment" with documentation of at
least one dose of each required vaccine. The parent or guardian
shall also provide an appointment date for the next required
dose of the vaccine(s) from a health care provider. This appointment
date shall serve as the exclusion date if the child is not
vaccinated on the appointment date. This process shall continue
until acceptable immunization status is attained.
Exemptions: A child shall be exempt from immunization
1. a physician licensed under RSA 329 certifies
that immunization against a particular disease may be detrimental
to the child's health. The exemption shall exist only for the
length of time, in the opinion of the physician, such immunization
would be detrimental to the child. An exemption from one immunization
for one disease shall not affect other required immunizations.
2. a parent or legal guardian objects to the immunization because
of religious beliefs. The parent or legal guardian shall sign
a notarized form stating that the child has not been immunized
because of religious beliefs.
Exclusion During Outbreak of Disease:
During an outbreak of a communicable disease for which immunization
is required, children exempted under this policy shall not
attend the school threatened by the communicable disease until
such threat is over.
