COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for all K-12 Employees

All PSD employees, including contractors and substitutes, are required to be fully vaccinated by October 18, 2021, or obtain a medical or religious exemption. Vaccination is a condition of employment, and per the proclamation will lead to a non-disciplinary separation of employment for those who do not comply with the vaccination or exemption requirement.

All new employees are strongly encouraged to complete the following requirements to obtain employment with the Puyallup School District:

  •If you are currently vaccinated, and have not already done so, submit a scanned, legible copy of your vaccination card to [email protected].

To apply for a Religious Exemption, click this link and complete the online form. If you have questions about the Religious Exemption process, email [email protected]. This form is only to be used for claiming a religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination.  

To apply for a Medical Exemption, click this link. You will need to print the PDF document and fill out the top portion of the form and then have your medical provider complete the bottom half of the form. Once the Medical Exemption form is complete email a scanned copy to [email protected].
