Springfield school officials have clarified their policy regarding students who don't have their required vaccinations at the start of the school year.
Students entering kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades must have updated immunization records on file. For the coming school year, those who don't have the proper paperwork will be notified on Friday, August 29th, and will not be allowed to attend school starting Tuesday, September 2nd. They can return when the paperwork is on file.
For balanced calendar schools, students will be held out starting August 4th until they provide the documentation.
