Immunization and Blood Lead Testing Policy

For the health, safety and welfare of our community, TBA adheres to State of Maryland immunization expectations for students in our programs. Documentation of compliance with these requirements shall be provided for all students before the beginning of each school year. Each child in Gan Ami classes must have on file current, complete Office of Child Care Health Forms, indicating satisfactory vaccination history. The parent of each child in any adult-child program must confirm that the child has received all necessary immunizations for their age. There are no religious or personal exemptions to this policy. In addition to immunizations, there are no religious or personal exemptions allowed for the Blood Lead Testing form and requirement. Medical exemptions will be reviewed, and parents will be notified if their child may attend programs. This policy follows the principles of the Union for Reform Judaism, as well as the standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and the American Council on Immunization and Prevention.
