Dear Parent or Guardian of an incoming Kindergarten or 1st grade student for the 2018-2019 school year,
The Texas Department of State Health Services has revised the immunization
requirements that take effect at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. The
following are the changes that are being implemented:
Kindergarten and 1st grade additional requirements
After reviewing your child’s immunization record, we have noted on the Health
Checklist the immunization(s) that will be required by your child to attend the first
day of school, 2018-2019.
It is our recommendation that these immunizations are obtained as soon as
possible and a copy of the physician validated immunization record is turned into
the school/clinic office for proper documentation.
The immunization changes are statewide, and we anticipate immunization clinics
to be quite busy. Please note that if your 1st grader is already up-to-date on their immunizations, no additional shots are needed.
Thank you for your prompt attention,
