Narragansett school personnel who are in direct and regular contact with students shall, at a minimum, be required to comply with the immunization requisites of Section 3 of R.I.G.L. 16-21-SCHO Part III, which is incorporated and made a part of this policy.  A copy of the Rules and Regulations shall be kept and made available for review at each of the school clinics.  It is acknowledged that these Rules and Regulations are continually being revised by the Rhode Island Department of Health.  Revisions of these Rules and Regulations shall be automatically made a part of this policy, except to the extent that a more stringent standard is adopted pursuant to Article II of this policy.
