7th Grade Immunizations

Texas students entering 7th grade are required to have two additional immunizations prior to the first day of school. One dose of Tdap (Tetanus Diphtheria and Pertussis) is required within the last five years and one dose of MCV4 (Quadrivalent Meningococcal Conjugate) is required on or after 10 years of age. Many students may have already received one or both of these immunizations. Please review your child's immunization record or contact your child's healthcare provider to ensure your child has the required immunizations. Our school nurse is available if you have questions or need to update your child's immunization record. Taking care of these immunization requirements now will help facilitate a smooth transition to Jr. High.

Thank you for a successful course registration. Please read below for details as we begin the next phase of the registration process.

Course Verification Sheet

  • Course request verifications will be posted in Parent Access (PAC) Wednesday, April 7, 2021. Please login to Parent Access (PAC) to view your student’s course requests by clicking on Student Plans and then the Course Requests tab. We ask that you review the course requests with your student and verify that they are accurate.
  • Please ensure that your child has listed three course alternates in their course selections in order of preference. Counselors will use this information to resolve scheduling conflicts. Students who do not list alternates will be placed in available classes and will not be able to make any changes.

Changes to the Course Verification Sheet

  • If you find an error in the course requests or would like to make a change, please email your student’s school counselor the request and she will make the change in your student’s requests. The change should show up in your student’s SAC or PAC within 3 school days. Please see the list of counselors by alpha below.
