Annual Scoliosis Screening November 13th – 7th & 8thGraders
Texas has once again changed who receives spinal screenings. This year 7thGrade Girls and 8thGrade Boys will be screened. In addition, 8th Grade girls who are 12 years old will be screened. Parents may opt to have the screening done by their child’s medical provider and send in written results by November 11th. For more information, see the Spinal Screening Notices on the Screening link on the left.

Get a jump on required immunizations for 7thGrade
Did you receive any shots at your last physical? If you did, they probably are the ones required for 7thgrade. All 7thgraders must have two new shots: Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4,MCV4, MenACWY, Menveo or Menactra).
Please consider getting the HPV immunization, too. This is not required but is highly effective in preventing several kinds of cancer.
Check out what immunizations we have on file for your child through the Skyward Family Access. Log-on and click on the Health Info tab on the left side of the page. If you have received immunizations not listed on this page, please send in a copy of your updated shot record via fax (214-626-1793), e-mail (email@example.com) or drop it off to me at school.
Information on required immunizations, waivers and the recommended vaccines for pre-teens and teens are listed on the Immunizations link on the left.
