Vernon Elementary School is a public Kindergarten to Sixth grade school in Vernon, Vermont.
Staffed by one of the most educated and experienced staffs in Southern Vermont, Vernon prides itself in the education afforded to our students. With small classes and dedicated teachers, Vernon works to educate each student to their own needs.
From the Vermont Dept of Health website: "To better understand the percentage of students in a school immunized for each required vaccine, Act 157 requires each school to make “aggregate immunization rates of the student body for each required vaccine” publicly available. Immunization rates for the entire school are reported here in alphabetical order. This spreadsheet is organized by school name, but may be ordered differently (eg. by supervisory union, highest to lowest rate, etc.) by clicking on the sort button at the top of each column."
