  • June Vodcast 2019

    Hello, I am Debbi Burdick, the very proud superintendent of the Cave Creek Unified School District. Undoubtedly, you have heard in the media about the reemergence of measles in the United States.  In compliance with state law, our District has a Governing Board Policy that does not allow students or staff in our schools without proof of vaccinations or an exemption.

    Therefore, for the health of our students and staff, by state law and per A.R.S.15-872 and CCUSD Governing Board Policy JLCB, we are requiring proof of current vaccination status or a valid exemption form prior to the first day of school attendance for all students and staff. Next school year, our first day of school for students is August 8th. Exemption forms are available at our schools or at the Arizona Department of Public Health. If you are viewing this, go to https://tinyurl.com/y44exvyj for current Arizona Immunization requirements or simply click the link if you are reading the text.  Please note that you do not need to resubmit if you have a current up-to-date copy of your student’s immunizations in the health office or for staff, in Human Resources.

    If you have questions or need additional information during the summer, please contact our Director of Education Community Services, Gina Durbin, at 480-575-2026, gdurbin@ccusd93.org,  or staff can contact our Human Resources Department. Information on immunizations and locations of free vaccinations clinics can be found at The Arizona Partnership for Immunization (TAPI) http://www.whyimmunize.org/ or call (602) 288-7568. If you need an immediate response, call the Maricopa County Health Department (602) 506-6767.  The City of Phoenix Fire Department has immunization clinics at www.phoenix.gov/fire/babyshots.html.

    Thank you for keeping our children and staff healthy by complying with the vaccination requirements and Arizona State Laws regarding immunizations.

    I look forward to seeing you in our schools next August and I hope you have a wonderful, safe and relaxing summer.  Thank you for listening.
