There is not a standard school supply list at the middle school and high school levels. Individual teachers will provide school supply information at Back to School nights or during the first week of school. It is recommended that students bring paper, pens and pencils the first week until they receive a list of class-specific supplies from their teachers.
No hay una lista estándar de útiles para la secundaria y preparatoria. Los maestros proveerán la información de los útiles escolares en los eventos “conozca al maestro” o durante la primer semana de clases. Se recomienda que los estudiantes traigan papel, plumas (bolígrafos) y lápices la primer semana hasta que reciban una lista de los útiles específicos a las clases de parte de sus maestros.
Texas law requires that all children entering public or private schools and institutions of higher learning be immunized.
Validation of immunization records by a physician or public health clinic will be required for entering school. Any new enrollees who have not completed all immunizations at the time of enrollment must complete them as soon as medically feasible. Any document signed by a physician or the public health clinic listing each immunization and the month, day, and year in which it was given will be accepted.

Exemption from Immunization Requirements
Chapter §97.62 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) describes the conditions under which individuals can seek exemptions from Texas immunization requirements. Exclusions from compliance are allowable on an individual basis for medical contraindications, reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, and active duty with the armed forces of the United States. For more information on Texas law, access: www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize/school/default.shtm
Conscientious Exemption: A student may not be enrolled in school until the original, notarized affidavit is presented to the school nurse. Request the forms as early as possible to allow time for them to be mailed to you and completed before school starts. The school can not accept copies of the form; therefore, be sure to request as many original forms as you need to provide to daycares, camps, or any outside activities. To request the required Affidavit from the Department of State Health Services in Austin, Texas, please access the link below and contact the state department for any questions. https://corequest.dshs.texas.gov/
