Medical and Legal Information for Permanent Files 

Immunization Records 

In accordance with Kentucky immunization law (KRS: 158:035), no child shall be eligible for entrance into The Lexington School without first presenting an Immunization Certificate from a duly licensed medical practitioner or facility in Kentucky stating all immunizations are current (out of state and international families should contact Kristin Beers at kbeers@thelexingtonschool.org for more information).

  • Immunization exemptions will only be accepted for students with an exemption on file before January 2016. 

  

Required for all students entering 6th grade:

Birth Certificate 

No child shall be eligible for entrance into The Lexington School without presentation of a Certificate of Live Birth (copies are fine) issued by the state or country of birth. Hospital records (generally with the name of the hospital and footprints or designs) are recognized as heirlooms but not legal documents. If the legal name on the certificate does not match the name your child currently uses (nicknames excluded), it is essential the amended birth certificate is part of the permanent record also. 

  

Physical Examinations 

All students new to The Lexington School shall present documentation of a physical examination within 180 days prior to initial entry or 30 days after enrollment.
