According to the State of Louisiana Health and Hospitals and the Jefferson Parish Public School System, all immunizations and/or booster shots are to be administered before the start of the new school year. If any immunizations are due during the school year, the student has five (5) days to get the immunizations. If not obtained within those five (5) days, the student WILL be excluded from school. This policy is in the student handbook signed by the parents in the beginning of every school year.
