Health on Campus
Do you have a student entering Grade 7?
Grade 7 students require two additional immunizations – Tdap booster and Menincoccal. There are two ways that we can access this information: if your Doctor utilizes the Immtrac2 system (the official Texas Immunization Registry) we can access your student’s records once they are loaded by your Physician. Another option is to bring a printed copy of your student’s records to the school during registration. Proof of immunization is required prior to the first day of school.
Will your student need to take medication while at school?
If your student will need to take medication at school, you may bring it to the Nurse's Office along with the 2019-2020 Medication Administration Request.
