Latest News

  • Attention parents of sixth graders:

    Since 2009, the Texas State Department of Health requires all students entering the 7th grade to have Tdap, Meningococcal, and a second Varicella (chicken pox) vaccines.

    The Tarrant County Health Department will be at Colleyville Heritage High School on the morning of April 10 from 10-11am to administer state required and/or recommended immunizations.  This clinic is available to students that are uninsured, underinsured as well as any student on Medicaid. Please see the attached information/registration sheet.

    Please don’t wait to get your child’s required immunization.  Waiting until August means that the lines are long and that you are rushed!  We have held many incoming 7th grade schedules until immunizations are completed.
