In preparation for the 2020-2021 school year, we want to send a friendly reminder regarding the required vaccines. The State Minimum Vaccine Requirements and letters to parents are hyperlinked. Please remember to comply with the Texas minimum vaccine requirements for school entry. Students must be up-to-date with their vaccines, in progress of receiving required vaccines, or have a valid vaccine exemption to attend school.Immunization Requirements(For a list of state-required immunizations, please refer to the documents at the bottom of this page)Any student coming into school to register must be cleared through the school health office for compliance with state immunization requirements for school children. Some 30-day provisional enrollment will be granted but ONLY if certain requirements are met.Students who have already registered and are delinquent on required vaccines must obtain needed vaccines and be cleared by the school health office prior to starting classes. Texas State Law and Board Policy state that all required immunizations be physician or Health Department verified. Month, date and year for each shot must be indicated. The following chart summarizes the vaccine requirements in Title 25 Health Services, Section 97.61-97.72 of the Texas Administrative Code.
If you have updated shot records you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.orgFor children needing medical exemptions from immunization requirements, a written statement by the physician must be submitted at the time of registration. For children receiving an exemption for reasons of conscience, the district requires an official Texas Department of Health affidavit form notarized and submitted within 90 days from the date it is notarized at the time of registration. No other forms or reproductions will be allowed.Immunization Requirements & Letters to parents »
