They'll have to be completed by the 10th day of school, which means around the end of August. That's much sooner than this year's mid-October deadline. Around 500 students failed to comply and some were out of school for up to 3 weeks.</p> Wed, 19 Feb 2014 15:30:34 +0000 Rachel Otwell 19268 at http://wuis.org District 186 Moves Up Vaccination Deadline Students Lacking Immunizations Out Of School For 3 Weeks & Counting http://wuis.org/post/students-lacking-immunizations-out-school-3-weeks-counting <p>About five hundred Springfield students were forced out of the public schools last month for failing to have required physicals and immunizations. The number has since dropped to 87 kids missing classes. The deadline was October 15th. School board member Mike Zimmers says the policy should be changed for next year to have the deadline before school gets underway.</p><p>"Parents just need to plan, you know when they start thinking about ... we need to get school clothes or school supplies -- in your mindset just think, we need to get physicals, we need to get shots,” said Zimmers.</p> Tue, 05 Nov 2013 20:09:03 +0000 Rachel Otwell 12403 at http://wuis.org Students Lacking Immunizations Out Of School For 3 Weeks & Counting
