Students have been sent home a concent form, but they can also find it at  www.healthyschoolsllc.com.

Have you gotten your child a flu shot yet? We go tomorrow for one kid and then we need to find a time to bring the other one. Here’s hoping our pediatrician’s office is stocked. Last we checked, they had flumist, which won’t work for one kid, but not the shot.
