*State law and school district policy require that each child have the following documentation in order to register for school: Birth Certificate and proof of current immunizations

We will return the certificate to you once we have made a copy for our records. Birth Certificates can be secured for children born in Minnesota at the Minnesota Department of Health.

. Each child must have on file in the school health office a doctor’s report listing the types of shots that the child has received and the date (mo/day/yr) they were given.
If your child has been baptized in any denominational church please provide Immaculate Conception School with a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate. If they were baptized at Immaculate Conception no copy is needed. On your yellow registration form just fill-in the date and list ICC.
