Washington state law requires school-aged children to receive specific immunizations in order to attend school. Lakewood School District works with the Washington State Department of Health to comply with state laws on required vaccinations.
Washington state law RCW 28A.210.080 requires that all children show proof of immunization or certification of exemption to attend school. Students cannot start school without the required documentation.
All students must have a completed certificate of immunization status (CIS) form on file in the school office. Parents/guardians must complete the form and turn it into the school before the student can start school. Students will not be assigned to classes until the information has been turned in with the vaccines required for school attendance documented.
Parents/guardians are now able to print their own child's Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) through a new web portal called MyIR. This secure online system pulls data from the WA Immunization System (IIS) and will auto-populate the CIS with immunizations contained in the IIS. Parents/guardians simply need to print, sign, and submit the CIS to the school. We encourage parents/guardians to utilize this new system.
