Minnesota State law requires that each student is up-to-date on required immunizations before the start of each school year. A list of required immunizations is available from the school or medical provider. A record showing immunization history is required for all Kindergartners and 7th graders, and may be obtained from the family's medical provider. If a family elects not to fulfill a required vaccination, appropriate documentation must be completed prior to the start of the school year for the student to enter school.
Children are restricted from coming to school if any of the following apply:
Temperature of 100 degrees F or greater. The child must stay home until the temperature has been normal for 24 hours.
Vomiting or diarrhea. The child must stay home for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting and/or diarrhea has occurred.
Skin rash for more than 2 days, draining rash, or rash where the skin is broken. Medical treatment is recommended and the child may return to school with a physician's approval.
Diagnosis of a contagious or infectious disease, such as pinkeye, Chicken Pox, head lice, Impetigo, ringworm, Scarlet Fever, or Strep throat. Physician approval is necessary to return to school.
The goal of WCS is to educate children in the light of God’s Word and to prepare them for a life of service to God, to His Creation, and to their community.
