12-15 year old students approved for COVID-19 vaccine!
Now 12-15 year old students are approved for the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine. Akron Children's Hospital will have a vaccine clinic for all students 12 and older with consent forms turned in by May 21st. Please see the parent letter, information sheet, and consent forms on the right under COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics. Let us know if you have any questions.
We will be offering Binax COVID-19 testing kits that were made available to our district from ESC. You only need a smartphone or a web-cam on your computer/laptop to do a telehealth visit. Email or call your school clinic if you need a kit. Check out the instructional video on the right.
All students who will be 7th graders in the Fall of 2021 need to turn in their immunization records indicating they have received recent TDap and Meningococcal vaccines. Those who will be Seniors will need to turn in a record of receiving a recent Meningococcal vaccine. These vaccines are required by the State of Ohio prior to students entering the 7th and 12th grades. Please call us if you have any questions.
Please continue to practice good hand washing with your students as it is the best prevention against bacterial and viral infections, maintain a physical distance of 6 feet with people not in your household, and wear a mask when you leave your home. See the link on the right for help on good hand washing techniques. Thank you for helping our community stay healthy!
