Happy 2022 Acalanes! It’s traditional to start off the new year with resolutions for good health. It’s possible the current COVID surge has already thrown a wrench in your plans.  Despite our vaccination status and attempts to stay safe and healthy, many of us have friends and family who’ve had Covid or even had it ourselves.  It’s still important for us to set an intention to maximize our health and wellness, and to cultivate those practices we know will support that- healthy eating, optimal sleep, exercise, calm practices (meditation, yoga), connection, to name the most important.

Most students are now eligible to get boosters – PLEASE DO!!!   Despite the burden of COVID virus, our community is working hard to stay healthy and the high vaccination rate and observance of health department guidelines makes a significant difference and helps keep students in school learning. If  you haven’t yet, please submit your students’ COVID vaccine records.

COVID isolation, quarantines, and test kits:  The current guidelines for return to school after COVID illness require a negative COVIDt (if returning before 10 days). School sites do NOT have more test kits to distribute. Please see Principal Shawn’s COVID FAQs and Dr. Nickerson’s Covid Update for more details.

Make sure you always have your proof of vaccination – Try this site:  iPhone users: you can now put your vaccinationrecord in your Apple Health app (and Apple Wallet).

This week’s recipe Chocolate Pie (we all need a “little” indulgence once in a while).

Please be in touch with me to discuss any medical, health, or wellness concerns. Stay healthy and be well.
