Arkansas State Law also requires all pupils entering kindergarten or first grade to present an OFFICIAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE from the Office of Vital Statistics as well as a SOCIAL SECURITY CARD. Catholics are to present a BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATE also. IMMUNIZATION CERTIFICATES will be required for all students entering school for the first time and those who transfer from other schools.
The minimum immunization requirements for entry into school, regardless of grade, are three doses of Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis (DPT) or Diphtheria/Tetanus (DT), three doses of Polio vaccine, a Rubeola (measles) vaccine, and a Rubella (German Measles) vaccine. One dose of DTP and the polio vaccine must be given after the fourth birthday. Both measles vaccines must have been administered on or after the first birthday. Mumps vaccine, although not required by law, is strongly encouraged.

One dose of Varicella (chicken pox) must have been administered on or after the first birthday. One dose is required for all Kindergarten students. A parent/guardian or physician history of disease may be accepted in lieu of vaccine.
