This must be either an official certificate of immunization which can be found by clicking: www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/immunization-forms ,the official medical exemption form or a documented non-medical exemption. Medical and non-medical exemption forms can be found by clicking: www.colorado.gov/vaccineexemption. If parents choose to exempt their student, the district encourages using the non-medical exemption form when possible, however, parents/guardians and students over the age of 18 may submit a signed non-medical statement of exemption which must include the following information:
