A school administrator from one of Lakewood’s largest schools tells TLS they began calling parents, warning them they’re kids will not be accepted into class if they do not have their vaccination forms by Monday morning.
“We are not playing games,” the administrator told TLS. “The children sit here all day and not at home – we cannot have them infect other children.”
Other schools may be following suit.
According to Health Department regulations, should a parent fail to keep their unimmunized child home from school after a case was confirmed in the school, the Health Department will shut the school down for 21 days.
Four Measles cases have already been confirmed in Lakewood.
