Immunization Information for the Start to SchoolPer NYS Department of Health "Children entering or attending school in NYS, including Distance Learning, must comply with immunization requirements".

Students entering any grade where specific immunizations are required must provide proof of those immunizations to the school health office even if students will be participating in distance learning. As with regular school attendance if immunizations are not up to date by the the specific date set forth by NYS, students will not be able to access distance learning or attend in-person learning. ECSD students who already live in NYS have until 9/23/2020 to provide proof of needed immunizations.

Students entering the ECSD from another state have until October 8, 2020 to provide proof of needed immunizations. Please refer to NYS immunization requirements page at www.health.ny.gov. to review immunizations your child may need for school this fall.
