School Immunization Requirements are still in place.
Many students are missing the 2nd dose of Varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccine which is required for school entry. Those families will receive an email with a request to submit updated immunization records. Please check in with your local pediatrician’s office, Primary Care Provider, or our County Health Department.
Flu Vaccine is available NOW!
Reduced illness from flu will also ease the burden of illness from Covid in our hospital facilities. Flu vaccines are available at most medical practices and pharmacies. Free CC County Flu Shot Clinics begin next week.
Medical Forms and Medications at School
Please turn in any relevant medical forms your student might need for the 2020-21 school year. Those forms should be dated no earlier than June 2020. You can access forms here.
Parents: Feeling Overwhelmed? Who isn’t???
I found this TedTalk with Elizabeth Gilbert validating and nourishing.
Here’s a great one-pager on SLEEP to remind you why it’s so good for us.
Is your student interested in joining the Acalanes Health & Medicine Student Club? They meet at lunch on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays. Check it out here.
Please get in touch with me with any questions, concerns, and/or requests. I look forward to being in touch and connected!
