          • 6th Grade Immunization Announcement:

            Attention 6th Grade Parents:

            Is your child 11 years old? Has it been 5 years since their last DTap? If you answered yes to one or both questions, your child should be eligible to receive their MCV4 (Meningitis) vaccine and/or Tdap Booster. State law requires one dose of the meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) vaccine and a dose of the tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine for students in 7th-12th grades. The full vaccine requirements for 7th grade students can be found on the DSHS Immunization Unit website at We also want to remind you to get your child’s vaccinations early— before the busy back-to-school season. Getting your child vaccinated not only protects your child’s health, but also that of the community.

            Starting on Wednesday, March 1st we will distribute $30 Colt Cash to our 6th graders that provide the clinic a copy of their updated vaccine record that includes proof of both vaccinations. “Colt Cash” is a campus incentive system in which students can trade their “cash” in for prizes. This incentive will continue for one week. After March 8th, students will receive $15 Colt Cash for updated records until the end of the year.

            Let’s prep early for 7th grade to begin the 23-24 school year on the right foot!

            If you have any questions about vaccines, please consult your healthcare provider. You can also email the clinic nurse or clinic aide a scanned copy of your child’s records. Please remind your student to visit the clinic to pickup their Colt Cash should you decide to email. If you have any questions, call us at 281.234.0626. The clinic is open M-F 8:20p – 4:20p.

            Thank you for your help with this and continuing to keep your child and our community safe!
