Parents in the Winona Area Public School district are reminded that their students must be up-to-date with their immunizations or exemptions before school starts back up this fall.
If they are not, they cannot attend school until compliance. For WAPS students, once you take care of required immunizations or exemptions you can ask your health care provider to mail the updated paperwork to Student Health Services at 1570 Homer Road in Winona or fax to (507) 494-1067.
Immunization/Exemption compliance will now also be expected for children attending preschools and early learning programs, as well as for children enrolled in center-based and home day cares.
Also new for fall is the Meningococcal Meningitis immunization requirement for incoming 7th graders.
