LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) is reminding families with students preparing to attend the district’s early childhood education programs that immunization certificates must be received before the start of the school year.
August 17 is the first day of school for approximately 4,000 early childhood education students in JCPS, and the district’s Board of Education policy requires proof of immunizations be turned in prior to the start of school. Students who have not provided their immunization certificates by August 17 will not be able to attend class.
Families are encouraged to bring immunization certificates to their child's assigned school or to the JCPS Early Childhood Education application center located at 701 S. Hancock Street.
Every JCPS student in kindergarten through grade 12 must have a current immunization certificate on file within two weeks after starting school on August 10.
