Important Links for Parents
Multicultural Academy has opened up the parent portal of PowerSchool. With this portal you will be able to keep up with your child’s grades, attendance and lunch balances.
The Washtenaw County Health Department is reminding parents to have children up to date on vaccinations before the first day of school. Last year, new immunization rules went into effect that require all sixth-grade students or students entering a new school district who are 11 or older to get Meningococcal and Tetanus-Pertussis vaccines. All kindergartners, sixth-graders or students entering a new school district also must have a second chickenpox vaccine before the first day of school if they have not previously contracted the illness.
Michigan law requires students to be up-to-date with the required vaccinations on or before the first day of school. There are circumstances in which a required vaccine may be waived or delayed:
1. A valid medical contraindication exists precluding the child from receiving the vaccine. A medical waiver is required to be completed and signed by the child's physician and shall state the contraindications(s), the vaccine(s) involved, and the time period during which the child is precluded from receiving the vaccine(s).
2. The parents or guardians hold religious or philosophical beliefs which preclude receipt of a vaccination(s). A waiver must be signed by the parent or guardian with all information completely supplied. An updated waiver must be presented each year the child's immunization status is reported.
3. The child has received at least one dose of each immunizing agent and the next dose or doses are not yet due.
A child who has been exempted from a vaccination is considered susceptible to the disease or diseases for which the vaccination offers protection. The child may be subject to exclusion from the school or program, if the local and/or state public health authority advises exclusion as a disease control measure.
