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.
Please click here to request an Affidavit of Exemption.
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 here 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.
