YES Prep requirements

When enrolling your child at YES Prep, guardians must bring a signed record of the child’s current immunizations. The student can be enrolled provisionally if the required immunization process has begun. The student may remain on campus after 30 days if they have provided YES Prep with a record indicating they are one of the following:

  1. In the process of receiving immunizations
  2. Bringing an affidavit indicating they cannot receive vaccines
  3. Choosing not to receive the recommended vaccines (visit the Texas DSHS Exemption Information webpage for exemptions from immunization requirements)
If a guardian cannot provide YES Prep with the immunization records or one of the three documents listed above, YES Prep may require the student to stay home until the immunizations are complete.
Further details of required immunizations can be found by calling Health Services at (713) 349-7423, and by reviewing the YES Prep Student Handbook.
