Step 2: Admission’s Office

Please complete and send in the following:

  1. Medical Release
  2. Health Appraisal
  3. Immunization Record. (Send photocopy from family doctor)
    IMMUNIZATIONS:  Michigan State law requires our school to be in compliance with the current immunizations required for attendance. These requirements are subject to change. Your local health department can give you the answers you seek as well as your family provider. These immunizations must be done BEFORE the first day of school. The form that the State of Michigan requires us to have on campus is the MCIR (Michigan Care Improvement Registry) that can only come from your health provider or local health department. It MUST be signed by your provider or the assigned contact at the health department. If you are not a MI resident, please provide GLAA with a printed list of immunizations BEFORE the first day of school. Please be sure your student is up-t0-date.
    WAIVERS:  Some families choose to waive immunizations, but they must meet Michigan State law for our school to be compliant. If there is no history of immunizations given and you are a MI resident, you MUST make an appointment at your local health department to get a waiver for immunizations refused. This must be done BEFORE the first day of school. Some families may follow their own schedule and receive some and refuse others. A MCIR form is required for those received and a waiver for those refused. If you are not a MI resident, a waiver is still required BEFORE the first day of school.
