New Mandated Immunization Requirements

Dear PS 101 Parents,

Students who have not completed immunization requirements will not be allowed to attend PS 101.

As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. This legislation is in response to the measles outbreak and will help contain the spread of measles among unvaccinated students.

 

All prior religious exemptions granted to students are now invalid. Please see the Parent Immunization Letter from the DOE for more information.

All NYC students must meet the immunization requirements in order to attend school. You can review the immunization requirements online at schools.nyc.gov on the Immunizations page. Please review the Immunization Chart and Parent Immunization Letter (translated versions available on the Info Hub) to ensure that students are in compliance with requirements for school year 2019-20.

Regards,

 

G.Korrol
