Welcome to the Health Services home page!
We feel privileged to partner with you in supporting the education of your student. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of each student, thereby strengthening their ability to perform academically. We will accomplish this through communication, health education, and the provision of effective health services.
Please review this page for any policies, procedures, and permission forms required to meet the health needs of your students while on campus. Also please read the letters from the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendations and requirements for immunizations that are on this website under Parents>Health Services. Revisit this page often for the most up to date information regarding the health of your child while at school. We will ensure timely updates are included to keep you informed on immunizations, screenings, seasonal illnesses, and more.
Please make sure your child's Student Health Information Sheet (SHI) is current for this school year. The SHI is required to be updated every new school year. This ensures the school nurse is informed of any changes to your child's health that may require attention (i.e., seizures, broken leg, concussion symptoms, etc.).
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to invest in the growth of your student, and feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns.
