Welcome to South Burlington School District. The following registration requirements are in place to ensure that children attending our schools are immunized against vaccine preventable diseases, as well as adhering to guidelines set-forth by the Vermont Department of Health.
We must have an official, up-to-date copy of your child’s immunization record at the time of registration. Please note that without the necessary documents, your child will not be able to start school.
Please see the reverse side for the Vermont Vaccination Schedule. If your child has received all of the required immunizations, and the school has an up-to-date record, no further action is needed. If your child is not up-to-date, the required immunizations must be given within 30 days of registering, or exclusion will occur. If you have any questions concerning compliance, please bring the record immediately to your child's health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, below are some resources:
- Vermont Department of Health Immunization Clinic: (802) 657-4232
- Community Health Center: (802) 864-6309
- Local Yellow Pages for Pediatric and Family Practice Providers
If your child has had chickenpox disease, our child does not need to receive shots for chickenpox. However, you will need to complete and submit a form stating your child has had the disease. This form is available from the school nurse or at the Health Department’s Website: http://healthvermont.gov/hc/imm/documents/IZ_varicelladocumentation_020808.pdf
You may claim an exemption for one or more vaccinations. If your child is exempt for any reason (medical, religious, or philosophic reasons), please complete and submit an exemption form. In addition, parent education is required when signing an exemption form for philosophical or religious reasons. The forms and educational paperwork are available from the school nurse or at the Health Department’s website:

Thank you for your efforts to protect the health of South Burlington’s children against vaccine preventable diseases. Please contact the school nurse immediately if you have any concerns about compliance with the Vermont requirements.
