Who can register a student?

Enrolling a student in Butte Public Schools must be done by a custodial parent who lives within the district boundaries.  A new student cannot be registered by a parent or other relative who does not have legal custody of the child.

What to bring to the School:

  • Proof of Residence
  • Photo ID (Drivers License)
  • Original or official birth certificate written in English
  • Proof of Residency (see below)
  • Custody papers (if applicable)
  • Immunization records
  • Consent for records release

Required Immunizations:

  • Polio: 3 doses and at least 1 does after the 4th birthday.
  • DTP/DT/DtaP/Td: 4 doses and one dose must be given after the 4th birthday.
  • Tdap/booster: 1 dose (Prior to entering the 7th grade a pupil must receive a dose of Tdap containing vaccine. This Schedule applies to pupils who have completed the prior 4 doses listed above.)
  • MMR: Dose 1 on or after the first birthday and dose 2 prior to kindergarten entry. A pupil entering any grade from 7 to 12 who has not already received the 2 required doses at kindergarten age must receive the second dose.
  • Varicella: 2 doses prior to entering kindergarten.

The vaccines are available from your private health care provider or the Butte Silver Bow Health Department on an appointment only basis. Contact 497-5026

If a child has not completed the minimum vaccination series required by Montana Law, a Conditional Attendance Form, No. HES 103-1B should be completed and attached to the Blue immunization Form (HES-101). If the pupil received at least one or more doses of the required vaccine, he/she can conditionally attend until the next dose is due. In order to remain in school the student must continue to receive all remaining doses as specified on the conditional form. If the student fails to complete the immunizations within the time period indicated, he/she must either qualify for or claim an exemption or be excluded immediately from school by the school administrator or the person designee.

The school nurses ask that parents of 5th and 6th graders update their child's immunizations with a Tdap and MMR and have the documentation brought to, mailed, or faxed to your child's present school building.

Proof of Residency

A copy of a current utility bill or driver's license showing name and address must be provided to the school.  

Medical Exemptions

Parents need to have the back of the blue immunization form (HES 101) completed, and signed by a physician licensed to practice medicine in the United States or Canada, (MD or DO) specifying the reason and duration of the medical exemption.

Religious Exemptions

If immunizations are contrary to the religious beliefs of the parent or guardian a claim of exemption on religious grounds must be notarized each year on an affidavit provided by the Department of Public Health and Human Services.
