Updated Exemption Information
Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year (7/1/2021), the process of submitting a nonmedical exemption will change. There will be two ways to submit a nonmedical exemption.
 
The health clerk at Flagstaff Academy does have access to the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). We will need a printed copy of the Certificate of nonmedical exemption or if you submit to CIIS, the school is able to access the Certificate of nonmedical exemption from CIIS.
 
Submit the Certificate of non-medical exemption WITH a signature from an immunizing provider in Colorado who is a medical doctor, doctor of osteopathic medicine, advanced practice nurse, delegated physician’s assistant, or pharmacist OR
 
Submit the Certificate of nonmedical exemption received upon the completion of CDPHE’s Online Immunization Education Module.
 
Per Colorado Revised Statutes 25-4-2403, immunizing providers who sign the Certificate of Nonmedical Exemption must submit nonmedical exemption data to CIIS
 
Parents of students in grades K-12 claiming a non-medical exemption must submit one annually. Nonmedical exemptions expire June 30th each year. If you submit a Certificate of nonmedical exemption on or before June 30th, it will not be valid for the upcoming school year unless you submit the exemption during early registration.
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Health Clerk by phone (303) 651-7900 ext. 211 or email.
