Please report the completed immunizations to LRCS.  Documentation can be faxed to the school at (218)828-1643.  If immunizations are needed, you may go to your family doctor or make an appointment with Crow Wing County Health by calling (218) 824-1080.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact the school office at (218) 828-1226.   

 

If you conscientiously object to your child being immunized or if a doctor certifies that it would be unhealthy for your child to be immunized, you may complete a statement indicating the exemption.  This form can be picked up in the LRCS school office.  Please return it as soon as possible.
