Please register your child before the start of the school year when possible if your child is new to our district. Our offices maintain summer hours which pertain to the 2 weeks after school in June and 2 weeks before school in August. Office staff are available to answer questions and enroll your child at that time. For information and registering your Kindergartner, visit our Kindergarten Round-Up page.

Michigan Law Immunization Requirements

According to Michigan law, a principal is prohibited from admitting new students without a record of having received at least one immunization dose for each of these illnesses:  measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis. 

Records for new students to the district as well as incoming kindergarten students will be reviewed for compliance. If there are no records of immunization or incomplete records, a notice will be sent to the parents or guardians. 

Students not in compliance will be excluded from school until correct documentation or proof of immunization is presented.  If parents have a religious or other other objection to immunization, they may sign a waiver to be kept on file.  The parent may provide a Statement of Objection for Medical Reasons which must be signed by a physician.  Immunizations can be obtained at your local health department or your physician.  The School-based Health Clinic can provide immunizations for current students only.

If you wish to call the Roscommon County Health Department to schedule an appointment, please do so as soon as possible.  This will allow the health department time to have all students in compliance for the new school year.  If you prefer to use your local doctor, please make your appointment and submit proof of appointment to the school office.
