IMMUNIZATIONS******************************************************

Texas State law requires that all 7th graders have the following immunizations before they are allowed to begin the first day of school:

  1. TdaP(Tetanus Diptheria, Pertussis),
  2. Meningococcal(Meningitis)
  3. Varicella( a second chicken pox)

    For a complete list of vaccine requirements, please go to:

    www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize/school
    The Doerre Clinic MUST have a copy of these shots BEFORE the first day of school. These records may be e-mailed to schilton2@kleinisd.net any time over the summer- please confirm that they were received and reviewed.  They may be dropped off in the front office or faxed to the clinic after August 15th.                       

Screenings:

ALL new students to Klein ISD and all 7th graders are screened for the following during the school year.

*Vision and hearing - Thank you for following up with a specialist and returning the results  to the clinic . The return of this report to the school is required by the state if follow up is to be complete. If you cannot afford vision care for your child, please contact the clinic, as we have many free and reduced cost resources.  If your child is reporting having trouble seeing or hearing in class and you would like to have your child in ANY grade screened, please contact us.        Acanthosis Nigricans(AN) is a skin marker found on the back of the neck that we also look for during our 7th grade screenings. It is a possible result of high insulin levels in the blood , which can be a precursor toType II Diabetes(which is on the rise in teenagers in the U.S.) If we feel that the student has this marker, we will also check his/her blood pressure and will notify you within the next couple of months. Further information about AN will be mailed to you along with the referral letter to take to your child’s physician. In Texas, early detection and disease prevention are promoted through
measures such as this.


*Growth Assessment- height and weight were obtained on your child in a private setting. Please contact the clinic if you need any information regarding this.

8th grade screenings:

*Spinal screenings are done on all of our 8th graders .  If abnormalities were detected,  a referral letters was mailed to your home regarding the need to follow up with your child’s physician . 


Since routine screenings are not done in high school, we hope that you will follow up with any potential health problems that you are notified about concerning your child during these middle school years. If you need any information regarding financial resources available for health care, please let us know- we would like to help!
