Non-medical Waivers No Longer Available in the School Offices

If you choose to opt-out of immunizations, immunization waivers for non-medical reasons are no longer available in the school office or online. Certified State of Michigan Waivers MUST be obtained through the Health Department and have a validation stamp on them for ALL new students to Onsted Community Schools, ALL 7th grade and 2015-16 kindergarten students. For more information regarding waivers contact school nurse Laura Dowling at 467-7046, or the Lenawee County Health Department at 264-5226 to set up an appointment to obtain a waiver and beat the back-to-school rush in August.
