Thornton Middle School health office has sent letters through USPS to all families whose students are not currently compliant with their school immunization requirements. For those students, you must provide one of the following to Thornton Middle School on or before October 26 in order to comply with Colorado law:
An immunization record from your health care provider or a Certificate of Immunization certifying that the student has received the necessary immunizations as indicated above.
If a student’s Certificate of Immunization is not up to date, the parent, guardian, or emancipated student has 14 days after notification to provide documentation that the next required immunization was administered and submit a written plan for completion of any additional required immunizations. If the plan is not completed, the student shall be excluded from school for noncompliance.
A medical or non-medical exemption is submitted to the school if a student is not fully immunized. Exemption guidance and information are available at www.colorado.gov/
