IMMUNIZATIONS FOR 11 YEAR OLDS DUE:
Letters will be sent out in October 2018 to students that have reached 11-12 years of age. This will give you the opportunity to get these immunizations during the holidays completed. When your child has received his/her shots please send a copy to the nurse. Please be aware that if their shots have not been completed before 7th grade they will not be able to pick up their schedules.
PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE FLU
It is that time of the year that we have to prevent the spread of the flu, so please keep your children home if they have any flu like symptoms such as a fever over 100.5, muscle aches, sore throat, headaches and fatigue. If their symptoms and fever continue after 48 hours please take them to see your family physcian, urgent care or emergency room.
