September is Attendance Awareness Month! All students at school, on time, every day!


There’s no better time than the beginning of the school year to remind and encourage students to be in school on time, every day. Millions of hours of instruction and learning, every year, are missed due to absences.


Poor attendance can start as early as kindergarten and continue to affect achievement through high school. Chronic absenteeism is missing 10% (18 to 20 days) or more of school for any reason. Research indicates that attendance is a major indicator for students eventually dropping out of school.


September is Alabama Attendance Awareness Month in support of the national campaign. The campaign is designed to increase understanding for educators, parents, students, and community partners of the major impact school attendance has on the success rates, both academically and behaviorally, of our students.

VACCINATING ALABAMA KIDS IN SCHOOLS

Vaccinating Alabama Kids in Schools or VAKS, LLC, is owned by Huntsville Pediatric Associates, a local pediatric practice comprised of eight pediatricians. The physicians of VAKS desire to promote the health of Alabama’s children by providing influenza vaccines on site in area schools, making it more convenient for parents and potentially protecting more children against flu infection.


A healthcare team from VAKS. LLC, will be at our school on September 25th, to administer flu vaccine to students who return a completed and signed vaccine consent form. Participation in this school-based flu vaccine clinic is strictly voluntary. Flu vaccine consent forms were sent home with students this September 1. Additional forms are available at the Buckhorn School nurse’s office. If you are interested in your child receiving his/her flu vaccine during the clinic at school, please complete and return the consent form to the attention of the school nurse by no later than September 18th . Unfortunately, students who are children of education employees and covered by PEEHIP insurance, are not eligible to participate in the VAKS sponsored clinics. PEEHIP dependent students are eligible to participate in the PEEHIP-sponsored Employee Wellness Screening/ Flu Vaccine clinics scheduled to be conducted on site in our schools beginning in late October 2015.


If you have additional questions about the flu vaccine, please refer to the information included on the Madison County Schools Health Services webpage or contact your child’s health care provider.


Thank You!
