Public Health Solutions doesn’t want flu to take you out of the game. Every year just like you need school supplies, you also need a flu shot. As many of you have probably already heard, this year the CDC is recommending that the vaccine be given by shot only. This means no flu mist will be available.
Public Health Solutions would like to encourage you to still help to “Protect the Ones You Love” by getting immunized against the flu. Healthy school age children may not experience complications to the flu, but could risk exposing a sick elderly grandparent or baby brother/sister to the virus. The elderly and infants under 6 months of age are at a greater risk to have serious complications. With flu season almost here, Public Health Solutions District Health Department will again be offering flu immunization clinics for students at our school.
Prior to the start of the clinics, students will bring home consent forms and fact sheets explaining the importance of getting the flu immunization. As parents or guardians, you are encouraged to read the information carefully, complete and sign the consent form and send it back to school with your student.
One lucky student will be a double winner! Not only will they have gotten protected against the flu by getting a flu shot, they will also be entered into a drawing. This year, Public Health Solutions will enter all students who return a completed permission form AND get the flu shot the day of the school clinic into a drawing for a $25.00 gift card. One lucky name will be drawn at the end of the school clinic day.
Public Health Solutions District Health Department will be at our school on Tuesday, October 24th. Flu shot packets are coming home with your child today.
5th GRADE CLASS CHAPEL
5th Grade will present their class chapel Wednesday, October 25th beginning at 8:30 a.m. Please plan to attend. Parents are welcome at this chapel, or any Wednesday chapel.
