If a health assessment is not provided within 30 calendar days, the student shall be excluded from school until proof is provided.  See North Carolina General Statutes (G.S. 130A-440).

 

In addition, North Carolina law requires parents/guardian to present certification of immunizations on or before the first day of school entry. If documentation is not presented within 30 calendar days, the student shall be excluded from school until proof is provided. See North Carolina General Statutes (G.S. 130A-152(a)).
