KUSD deadline for immunizations is near
The Kenosha Unified School District (KUSD) has made the following announcement regarding immunizations:
KUSD students in kindergarten through grade 12 who are not compliant with the immunization law will be excluded from school for as many as three days beginning on Monday, October 22nd. A letter informing parents/guardians and adult students of exclusion will be mailed on Friday, October 19th.
According to state law, the superintendent may exclude from school students who have not been immunized or who are not compliant with the law if they have failed to meet the immunization requirements within 30 days of admission to school. Monday, October 15th marks the 30th day of the school year. All students who have not complied with the law are affected by this ruling. Students excluded will be allowed to return to school after three days, or sooner, if they become compliant. However, the matter will be referred to the District Attorney for legal action if compliance is not met.
Parents/guardians and adult students not in compliance may be fined up to $25 per day for each day that the student remains non-compliant. Legal notice of non-compliance was sent to parents/guardians and adult students on Monday, September 24th, and Monday, October 8th. A final warning letter will be sent to parents/guardians and adult students on Friday, October 12th. In addition to legal notices, principals, secretaries and high schools nurses have contacted parents/guardians of students who were not in compliance either personally or via newsletters and telephone calls.
