SCHOOL & DAY CARE
MINIMUM IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

Virginia Entrance Physical Form (PDF)

Age Requirement for Kindergarten:  A child must be 5 years of age on or before September 30th to enroll in school.

Physical: All pupils entering public preschool/kindergarten must have a physical within one year of entering kindergarten.  This also applies to students in the Four Year Old Program and Headstart. 

Documentary proof shall be provided of adequate age appropriate immunization with the prescribed number of doses of vaccine indicated below for attendance at a public or private elementary, middle or secondary school, child care center, nursery school, family day care home or developmental center. Vaccines must be administered in accordance with the harmonized schedule of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics, and American Academy of Family Physicians and must be administered within spacing and age requirements (available at http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/Epidemiology/Immunization/acip.htm). Children vaccinated in accordance with either the current harmonized schedule or the harmonized catch-up schedules (including meeting all minimum age and interval requirements) are considered to be appropriately immunized for school attendance. (See “Supplemental Guidance for School-required Vaccines” for additional information.)

Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis (DTaP, DTP, or Tdap). A minimum of 4 doses. A child must have at least one dose of DTaP or DTP vaccine on or after the fourth birthday. DT (Diphtheria, Tetanus) vaccine is required for children who are medically exempt from the pertussis containing vaccine (DTaP or DTP). Adult Td is required for children 7 years of age and older who do not meet the minimum requirements for tetanus and diphtheria. Effective July 1, 2014, a booster dose of Tdap vaccine is required for all children entering the 6th grade.

Haemophilus Influenzae Type b (Hib) Vaccine. This vaccine is required ONLY for children up to 60 months of age. A primary series consists of either 2 or 3 doses (depending on the manufacturer). However, the child’s current age and not the number of prior doses received govern the number of doses required. Unvaccinated children between the ages of 15 and 60 months are only required to have one dose of vaccine.

Hepatitis B Vaccine. A complete series of 3 doses of hepatitis B vaccine is required for all children. However, the FDA has approved a 2-dose schedule ONLY for adolescents 11-15 years of age AND ONLY when the Merck Brand (RECOMBIVAX HB) Adult Formulation Hepatitis B Vaccine is used. If the 2-dose schedule is used for adolescents 11-15 years of age it must be clearly documented on the school form.

Human Papillomavirus Vaccine (HPV). Effective October 1, 2008, a complete series of 3 doses of HPV vaccine is required for females. The first dose shall be administered before the child enters the 6th grade. After reviewing educational materials approved by the Board of Health, the parent or guardian, at the parent’s or guardian’s sole discretion, may elect for the child not to receive the HPV vaccine.

Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) Vaccine. A minimum of 2 measles, 2 mumps, and 1 rubella. (Most children receive 2 doses of each because the vaccine usually administered is the combination vaccine MMR). First dose must be administered at age 12 months or older. Second dose of vaccine must be administered prior to entering kindergarten but can be administered at any time after the minimum interval between dose 1 and dose 2.

Pneumococcal (PCV) Vaccine. This vaccine is required ONLY for children less than 60 months of age. One to four doses, dependent on age at first dose, of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine are required.

Polio Vaccine. A minimum of 4 doses of polio vaccine. One dose must be administered on or after the fourth birthday. See supplemental guidance document for additional information.

Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine. All children born on and after January 1, 1997, shall be required to have one dose of chickenpox vaccine administered at age 12 months or older. Effective March 3, 2010, a second dose must be administered prior to entering kindergarten but can be administered at any time after the minimum interval between dose 1 and dose 2.

Rev. 4/14

The 2013 Virginia General Assembly passed a law which requires all 6th grade students to have tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) booster shot. Students must comply with this legislation by the first day of school Sept 2, 2014. No student will be allowed to start school with out proof of this immunization.

This immunization is available FREE at King George Health Department on Tuesdays from 8a to 12n.

Once the immunization has been completed please bring a copy of the shot record to the school nurse. These records may be brought in to your school nurse at any time.

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

Perfect attendance means that the student has been in school for the specified period of time without any absences, excused or unexcused. A full day of school means that the student is in school from the start of the daily schedule until the dismissal time / bell. Tardies and early dismissals (other than activities which are school sponsored) will prevent a student from being defined as having perfect attendance.

"Person of school age"   Section 22.1.1 Code of Virginia
 
"Person of school age" means a person who will have reached his fifth birthday on or before September 30 of the school year and who has not reached twenty years of age on or before August 1 of the school year.

A student shall not be absent from or tardy to class without written parental permission.  A student who does not attend school is in violation of Virginia Statute 22.1-254 (Compulsory School Attendance). 

The definition of truant is:

  • A student who is not enrolled in school at anytime during the month with no previous arrangements made in regard to compliance to the Compulsory Attendance laws;

  • A student who is absent from school for a total of five (5) days during the school year and no written notice has been received by the appropriate school personnel;

If your child is absent, you should call the school office to inform them that your child will not be in school that day.  When your child returns to school, a written note must be sent on the day the student returns to school.  

Students may be excused from school for the following reasons: 

  • Student illness: (student illness for more than 5 days - requires a doctor's note);  

  • Medical/dental appointments;

  • Court appearance (with verifications);

  • Death in immediate family (limit 3 days);

  • Interviews for college, military, or vocational programs (Seniors only, not to exceed 2 days);

  • Driver's license process (1/2 day);

  • Documented religious holidays with prior notification to Principal;

  • Other valid excuses as determined by the Principal.

Students shall attend a full day of school unless otherwise excused. Tardies (coming to school late) or early dismissals must have a written note accompanying the student.  

Consistent/excessive early dismissals are not permitted and will be regarded as “tardies” and may be referred to Court Services as truant. 

If your child is absent, you should receive some contact from school.  At four days of unexcused absence, a mandatory school conference with you must occur to develop a plan for intervention. Parents will be held responsible for their child's attendance at school unless the student is 18 years old or over.  

Success in school can only occur with regular, on-time, all day attendance.  From kindergarten to high school, it is your responsibility and a sign of good parenting to assure your child's good school attendance.

The following information is provided to assist families who are interested in providing instruction in their home or who are interested in requesting an exemption to the Compulsory Attendance Statute. The Central Office contact for Home Instruction and Compulsory Attendance information is Gayle W. Hock, MSW, Supervisor of Guidance and Social Work Services. You may reach her at 775-5833 ext 8614. Please call before coming to the School Board Office to determine if she is in the building as she has duties which take her to the school buildings and out of the School Board Office on a frequent basis. She may be reached by email at ghock@kgcs.k12.va.us. Mailing address for documentation is : King George County School Board Office, Att. Gayle Hock, PO Box 1239, King George, VA . 22485.
