Students Without Proper Shots to be Sent Home

KSAL StaffNovember 9, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita students who aren’t up to date on required immunizations will be excluded from school next week.

Beginning Nov. 16, students in the Wichita school district will be pulled out of class and told they are not allowed to return to school until their immunizations are up to date.

Wichita Public Schools Health Services Coordinator Kimber Kasitz says 2,000 students were not in compliance with vaccine requests as of Friday.

Officials say school nurses have been notifying parents about the requirements through letters, phone calls, emails and parent-teacher conferences.

Kansas schools will allow an unvaccinated child to attend class if the child’s health is threatened by receiving a vaccine or if one is opposed to vaccinations because of religious beliefs.
