With the May 1 deadline just a few weeks away, the Central York School District still has about 125 students in need of updated vaccinations or documentation that they have obtained those vaccinations.
The state has mandated that students no longer be allowed to attend school if they haven't had all the required vaccinations by that date.
"It rips me up thinking that students might miss class because of this," said assistant superintendent Robert Grove.
Grove told the board that the district nursing staff is working "diligently" to secure all the necessary documentation and that the Pennsylvania Department of Health will be offering some community clinics.
Grove said that letters and global connect calls as well as home visits have been made to press home the seriousness of the situation with parents and guardians.
Board member Timothy Bieber asked what the district planned to do if students failing to meet the requirements show up at school on May 1.
"Will we be providing transportation home?" asked Bieber.
Replied Grove: "We still have some legwork, but will make sure that all of our 't's' are crossed."
