WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Time is running out for Wichita students to get caught up on their immunizations soon.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1gvUFex ) reports that the Wichita district will begin excluding students who aren't up to date beginning Nov. 4. Officials said school nurses have been notifying parents about the requirements.

Kansas schools allow an unvaccinated child to attend school under two conditions. One is if the child has an annual written statement from his or her physician saying that the child's life or health would be endangered by undergoing the inoculation. The other is if the parent or guardian has signed a written statement that the child is an adherent of a religious denomination whose teachings are opposed to inoculations.

Children claiming an exemption can be excluded from school during suspected disease outbreaks.
