Texas State Law requires that ALL 7th graders receive the following vaccines:
- Tdap booster - 1 dose within the last 5 years
- Meningococcal vaccine - 1 dose of the quadrivalent vaccine on or after 11th birthday
For those parents who do not want their children to be vaccinated for reasons of conscience, a notarized Affidavit of Exemption must be filed with the school.
You may fax, mail, email, or bring the updated shot records to the school.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas at Austin in 2003. After graduation, I worked at Seton Medical Center in Austin for 11 years. This is my 4th year at DSMS & I firmly believe I have the very best job on Earth. It is such a privilege to know and care for your children. I am married to a Drip native (Class of '93) & we have one daughter, Taylor, in 8th grade. In my spare time, I love to read, bake, travel, and play fantasy football.
