Flu Vaccine

Our district has teamed up with Healthy Schools, to offer your child a free Flu Vaccine regardless of your health insurance coverage.
We’ve made it as convenient as possible to safeguard your child against the flu this season.  Be on the look-out for your child to bring home their “Teach Flu a Lesson” consent form this week.
All you have to do is fill out the form, and have your child return it to his or her teacher. We will take care of the rest and remember there’s no cost involved to you.
The Healthy Schools team will be at our school vaccinating students on    Monday October 30th from 8 a.m to 11:30 am.

Bright Bytes Technology Survey


Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

We are partnering with BrightBytes, an educational data analytics company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use for learning. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in our questionnaire.

Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of  technology use for learning in our students’ lives. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy and they will help your child's school choose the right technology for their classrooms. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

The last day to complete this questionnaire is Monday, October 16, 2017.

Please go to here.

Thank you for taking part in this important initiative!
