Immunizations

  • All students enrolled in Mounds View Schools must comply with the Immunization Requirements of Minnesota Statute and Rule. Students who do not comply will not be able to attend classes until requirements are met. Licensed School Nurses and Health Care Specialists will help families who need assistance to meet the immunization requirements in a timely manner.

There have also been changes to the requirements for students entering Seventh Grade beginning in the 2014-15 school year. For students entering 7th grade, a Meningococcal and TDaP (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis) immunization are now required.
