The School Board believes that all children should be protected by immunization against all common preventable diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus and polio. These immunizations should be up to date before school entry and the parents should keep a record of the student's current and future immunizations.
The School Board supports the need for a measles elimination program and requests that all children entering kindergarten or otherwise enrolling in School District No. 52
(Prince Rupert) for the first time show proof of measles immunization or a letter from the parents declaring that they do not want their child immunized against measles or a letter from a physician declaring that measles immunization is prohibited for medical reasons. Each school Administrative Officer shall maintain a record of the requested information for each student enrolled.
