Rochester Public Schools are ready to swing those school doors wide on August 27th, but according to an interview I did with Superintendent Munoz, there are still about 200 kids enrolled, but without proof of immunization on file with the RPS.

Sure, 200 students out of 17,000 is just 1.17647058824% of the kids, but still, it'd suck if they got to school on the 27th and had to go home because they weren't immunized. It is likely the majority are students with parents that have been too busy to get it done, or just don't know their kids can't start school without immunization.

Let's try to reach those parents to pass along this info about where they can get their kids their shots, even if they're schedule is super busy.
