In accordance with New York State Public Health regulations, no student will be allowed to attend school without a complete and up-to-date immunization record on file with the District.
For families who are new to the Gates Chili School District, this means that you may not register your child for school without providing a current immunization record from a physician. For families with children currently attending school in the Gates Chili School District, please check with your pediatrician or school nurse to be sure that your child’s immunization record is complete and up-to-date.
Any student with an incomplete immunization record will be required to receive further immunizations before attendance at school will be permitted. Documentation of your child’s immunizations must be on file with theDistrict before the first day of classes or your child will be excluded from school until this is received.

- Diphtheria (DPT)
- Polio (oral)
- Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
- Hepatitis B
