Immunizations

No Shots, No School

In order to attend school, students must show that they're in compliance with Minnesota School Immunization Requirements (see Minnesota Department of Health Link below for more Information). Hastings Schools has adopted a No Shots, No School Policy. This policy states that students who are not up to date on their immunizations will not be allowed to start school until they provide the school with documentation that they have received the required immunizations. Parents/guardians may choose to decline immunizations for their students by filing a legal exemption with the school.

Parents/guardians may check their student's immunization status with the school by logging on to School View. To see the immunization records, click on the HEALTH tab. If your student's immunization status says "current for grade" in ALL immunizations required by law, then the student is up to date and ready for the start of school. If your child is not current, they will need to get the required immunizations.

Please note that the Meningococcal immunization will NOT be required for 10th - 12th graders by the Hastings Schools for the 2016-2017 school year. The Meningococcal immunization IS required for students entering 7th, 8th and 9th grade.
