Laramie County School District 1 reminds parents/guardians that the deadline for students to receive their required immunizations is Thursday, Sept. 26.

According to the district’s head nurse, Chris Bartholomew, immunizations are required by state law and notification of this requirement begins as early as February during registration and kindergarten roundup prior to the fall deadline.

If a student is not in compliance with this law, exclusion from school will occur on Friday, Sept. 27. Parents/guardians will be called to pick their child up from school to take their child for the required immunization. Parent/guardians are expected to bring the student back to school immediately after the immunization is completed.

Bartholomew says vaccine is readily available at healthcare providers in Cheyenne and the Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department. For more information, parents are encouraged to contact their school.
