Students and parents/caregivers need only submit proof of vaccination once prior to participating in activities in person at NMS. Proof of vaccination may include a photo of a vaccination card, a government-issued vaccination record, a provider-issued vaccination record, a QR code linked to a digital health record, or any other official record of vaccination.
Students and parents/caregivers may submit proof of vaccination in one of three ways:
Access to students’ proof of vaccination will be restricted to employees of NMS who need to know. Student privacy and confidentiality will be maintained at all times.
Government and public health laws/regulations, guidelines, and restrictions regarding Covid-19 and Covid-19 vaccines are changing rapidly as new information becomes available, further research is conducted, and additional vaccines are approved and distributed. NMS reserves the right to modify this policy at any time, in its sole discretion, to adapt to changing circumstances and needs.
For specific questions about the implementation of this policy, please direct your inquiries to email@example.com.
