Measles:

In the event that a student who is not fully immunized is exposed to measles (or if we have a case on a campus), by Texas state law, that student must be excluded from school a minimum of 21 days, even if they are not showing any symptoms. This exclusion period starts over with any new exposure or confirmed case. Please make sure your students are fully immunized to keep them protected from the measles, and in school so they can be prepared for college and career.
