Guidelines for Keeping Your Child Home
  • Temperature of 100.0 or higher during the past 24 hours.
  • Vomiting or diarrhea during the night or before school.
  • Contagious diseases such as chickenpox, strep throat, pink eye, or any unexplained rash.
  • Students may return to school after 24 hours of antibiotic therapy for strep throat or pink eye.
  • Please contact the school nurse if you have any questions.
All students must be fully immunized against certain diseases or must present a statement for medical reasons or a certificate from the state for reasons or conscience. 

For exemptions based on reasons of conscience, the District can honor only official forms issued by the Texas Department of Health.

The Health Department gives immunizations every Monday from 8:00 am until 11:30 am and 1:00 pm until 3:30 pm. They also stay open until 6:00 pm on the first Monday of each month.

When your child receives an immunization please bring a copy of the shot record to school so we can keep your child's health record up-to-date.
