Why should everyone get vaccinated?

Staff Vaccination Requirements for SY21-22

Our school communities’ health and safety is our top priority, which is why we’re requiring all employees to be vaccinated by October 15 (with the exception of those with certain medical conditions documented by a healthcare provider or certain sincerely held religious beliefs).

Additionally, all fully vaccinated staff who do not have a medical condition documented by a healthcare provider or certain sincerely held religious beliefs must provide proof of full vaccination by October 15; staff who do not provide proof of vaccination will be ineligible to work until proof is provided. Full vaccination is defined as at least two weeks after your second shot of a two-shot vaccination course, or at least two weeks after a one-shot vaccination course.
