• ATTENTION PARENTS OF INCOMING 7TH GRADE STUDENTS:       
                                                                                   x
     
    In the 2009-2010 school year, NEW immunizations were mandated for incoming 7th graders by the State of Texas. Those immunizations are:
     
    1. Meningitis vaccine
     
    2. A booster dose of Tdap if it has been at least 5 years since the last dose of DPT. Td will be acceptable if a pertussis containing vaccine is medically contraindicated.
     
    3. 2 doses of Varicella(chickenpox) vaccine if the student has not had chickenpox disease
     
     
    ALL incoming 7th graders MUST have these new immunizations by the FIRST DAY OF 7TH GRADE or they will not be allowed to begin school!
