YOUR STUDENT'S VACCINATIONS ARE ON SKYWARD FAMILY ACCESS
When you log into Skyward Family Access, click on the "Health Information" tab in the left-hand column to see all of the vaccination information that we currently have on file for your student. You can print a complete vaccination record right from home!
ALL INCOMING 9th - 12th grade students MUST have received 2 doses of Varicella vaccine, 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine, and a Tetanus booster (TDap) within the last 10 years. In addition, all 9-11th graders must also have 2 doses of Hepatitis A vaccine. NOTE: If your child had the chicken pox disease, the Varicella vaccine is not required - please provide month/year of illness to school nurse.
Please check you child's immunization records to verify they are up to date before school starts August 2020. If your child has an Affidavit of Exemption, please make sure that it is still valid. Affidavits are only good for two years from the date it is notarized.
If in doubt about your child's status, see your physician, or visit www.ImmunizeTexas.com

Vicky Metzger, RN, BS
I have been a nurse for 30 years, and a School Nurse for the last 9 years. My husband Larry and I have called Drippin' home for the last 33 years and all four of our children (Carley, Jamie, Tommy and Ani) went K-12 through DSISD. I began my nursing career at the Children's Hospital of Austin in the cancer /blood disorder ward for 8 years. After the birth of my 3rd child, I was able to be a stay-at-home mom where I devoted my time to being the "Mom Taxi" and volunteering at the schools and our church. Now I have the best job in the world! I love getting to know and care for incredible students that make up the Tiger Nation!

Jessie Turner, RN, BSN
I moved here four years ago with my husband Jeff and our three children Trinity, Nathan and Aliza. We immediately fell in love with Dripping Springs and the community! I received my BSN from the College of Saint Benedict and have spent most of my 20 years as a surgical nurse. I started subbing at the various district schools three years ago and in August 2019 was hired as the second registered nurse at the high school. When I am not at work, you will find me helping to train our Special Olympic athletes, volunteering at our church, or Uber driving my three kids around town.
