Any student attending the Lawson R-XIV School District must be in compliance with the Missouri state laws regarding immunizations. Students not in compliance with the law will not be permitted to enroll or attend school. A student is considered in compliance with the law if:
  • All immunizations are complete and the dates are provided to the school.
  • The immunization  process has started and is progressing according to the schedule recommended by the Missouri Department of Health.
  • An exemption from immunization has been arranged according to provisions of the law.

Parents are responsible for providing dates (day, month, and year) of all immunizations previously received when a student is enrolled. Exclusion from school, as required by the law, will occur if the student is not adequately immunized, or properly exempted.
