updated flu vaccine guidance imageDear Parent/Guardian:

As of the evening of 12/22, the state has extended the deadline for the flu vaccine requirement to February 28th. Therefore, children without the vaccine will not be excluded from in-person learning until March 1st. However, time certainly flies! To avoid disrupting their in-person learning experience, if your child is still in need of a flu vaccine, we ask that you arrange for them to receive it over the break or during the remote week.

If necessary, please contact your child's medical provider today to obtain a flu shot or make an appointment for them to receive the flu shot over the break. Flu vaccines are also available without an appointment at all local CVS and Walgreens Pharmacies on a walk-in basis. 

Proof of the vaccine must be delivered or sent directly to the school nurse at your child’s school. If you need help in obtaining a flu vaccine, please contact your child's school nurse. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

To parents and guardians who have ensured that their children have already received the flu vaccine...THANK YOU! Happy Holidays, All!
