From the Littleton Public Schools Website-

Board Policy, JLCB

“The Board directs the superintendent or designee(s) to annually provide parents/guardians of each student enrolled in the district a copy of the standardized immunization document developed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The standardized immunization document includes a list of required and recommended immunizations and the age at which each immunization should be given.

No student is permitted to attend or continue to attend any school in this district without meeting the legal requirements of immunization against disease unless the student has a valid exemption for medical or non-medical (religious or personal) reasons.

Students who do not submit an up-to-date certificate of immunization or a written letter confirming the date of appointment for required immunization(s) or a valid exemption will be suspended and/or expelled from school according to this policy’s accompanying regulation.

All information distributed to parents/guardians by the district will inform them of their rights to seek an exemption from immunization requirements.

Compliance with the immunization expectations is required for enrollment and attendance in LPS schools, unless the student has a valid exemption for medical or non-medical reasons.”
