Important Information for Parents:

  • Texas State Law requires ALL 7th graders to have the following vaccines:

    1. Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Acellular Pertussis-containing vaccine (Tdap): 1 dose within the last 5 years to be valid.

    2. Meningococcal Vaccine(MCV4, MCV4P): 1 dose of the quadrivalent vaccine on or after the student’s 11th birthday to be valid.

    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.

    Documentation must have a physician’s signature or clinic stamp along with the completion date of each immunization.

    In order to have access to your child's schedule in Skyward and to start school, proof of immunization or a current, notarized affidavit must be received. You may fax, mail, email, or bring the updated shot records to the school.

    I have been a registered nurse for 27 years and I truly love it! Before becoming a school nurse, I spent several years working as a registered nurse in a busy pediatric emergency room.
    My husband and I have been married for 24 years and love to call Dripping Springs our home. We have a son and daughter who graduated from DSISD in 2021 and 2017 and also have a son who is currently attending Dripping Springs High School. In my spare time I enjoy traveling to the beach, watching my favorite sports teams (Go DS Tigers!), and spending time with our english bulldog Poppy. 
    I cherish getting to know and care for your Sycamore Springs Middle School student. Please don't hesitate to contact me concerning any of your child's health needs.
