Immunization Requirements

School vaccination rules are in effect for the 2020-2021 school year.  Students should be up-to-date, in the process of receiving vaccines, or have a valid exemption on file when school starts in the fall.  

All students entering the 7th grade are required by the Texas Department State Health Services to have received the following additional vaccines:

  • Tdap (if at least 5 years has passed since last dose of tetanus-containing vaccine).
  • Meningococcal Vaccine (one dose after the 11th birthday)

Students entering K-11th grade are required by the Texas Department of State Health Services to have received the following additional vaccines:

  • Hepatitis A - 2 doses

        

Please check with your physician as to which vaccine your student has not received. After receiving these vaccines, please bring a copy from your physician's office to your campus nurse. Providing proof from your physician's office of these vaccines to your school nurse prior to the end of this school year will make your student's orientation in August go much more smoothly.
