Required  Childhood  Vaccinations  for  Preschool Programs  and  Schools

All Maryland students must provide documentation that they have received the required vaccinations at the appropriate interval in order to attend school. This applies to students who are new to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) entering Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, Grade 7, or who are transferring from another school district at any grade level.  Maryland State law requires that families provide proof of vaccinations within 20 days of the first day of school, which is Monday, August 29, 2022

Parents/Guardians may contact their healthcare provider for a copy of their children's vaccination records to verify which vaccinations have been received to date, or may view and print their children's vaccination records at the Maryland Department of Health Center for Immunization website: https://md.myir.net/. All healthcare providers in Maryland are now required to record vaccinations administered on lmmuNet, Maryland's secure immunization information system. Hard copies of the vaccination records are to be submitted to your school's assigned School Health Services (SHS) health room staff.

Important Dates! 
Monday, August 29, 2022: Students must provide documentation of required vaccinations unless parents/guardians provide documentation of an exemption. Students who have not received their vaccinations may enter school if they provide evidence of an appointment to be vaccinated by Monday, September 20, 2021.

Monday, September 19, 2022: Students who have not provided documentation of required vaccinations must be excluded from school until such documentation is provided


Students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on household size and income. They may also qualify if they are receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA), or Medicaid benefits. Families may apply for meal benefits by completing an Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals for the current school year. Beginning school year 2022-2023, students who qualify for reduced-price meals will not be charged that cost - meaning that reduced-price students will eat for free!

Federal eligibility guidelines change each school year; therefore a new application must be submitted each school year. All students in the family should be listed on one household application. A notice will be mailed home to each student if you are approved for meal benefits or do not qualify for meal benefits. Please keep this important document for your records and use throughout the school year. If you are NOT approved the meal prices will be as follows -  Breakfast $1.30 per meal, Lunch $2.55 per meal. 

*Families may apply for meal benefits at any time during the school year. 

Households that are unable to apply online should contact their school or the Division of Food and Nutrition Services at 240-740-7400.
