Shelton School District is prepared to open schools five days a week for all students in the fall for the 2021-22 school year. The health and safety of our students, staff, and families remain our top priority and we continue to monitor COVID data daily. If at any point during the 2021-22 school year circumstances change, we are prepared to shift to a hybrid or 100% online model, but for planning purposes, Shelton School District fully intends for students to return to school full-time for in-person learning in the fall.

Vaccine Requirements
Vaccine Requirements

Now more than ever we are focusing on keeping students healthy and safe. This includes keeping students safe from vaccine-preventable diseases. The Washington State Department of Health and Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction govern vaccine requirements. Per these requirements, only students who are fully immunized (this includes actively becoming compliant with vaccinations) and those with medically verifiable documentation of vaccination or exemptions, will be allowed to come to school for face-to-face instruction. State laws and rules, as well as district policy, require compliance with immunization requirements on or before the first day of attendance at school.

Obtaining required vaccinations:

  • If your student has medical insurance, you can find vaccination providers covered by your insurance on the insurance website or calling your insurance customer service. Then you must call the clinic and make an appointment for vaccinations.
  • If your student does not have medical insurance, you can contact Mason Health: Health Plan Finder Susana Lopez at (360)432-7766. She can also help you find a clinic for vaccinations.
  • Local pharmacies may also provide vaccinations for children, with medical insurance. You should call the pharmacy before you go to ensure they have vaccinations available and that they take your medical insurance.
