A Note from Our Nurse

Flu vaccine during Covid-19 pandemic

Health professionals are encouraging everyone to get the flu vaccine especially this year. At this writing, we do not know the effect of a dual diagnosis of Covid-19 and the seasonal flu might be on a person’s body. The flu vaccine takes up to two weeks to reach peak effectiveness. It takes two weeks for antibodies to develop and protect us from the seasonal flu. So getting the vaccine in September or October will help provide the best protection for the flu season. Flu vaccination should still be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later. CDC recommends for all people 6 months and older get a flu vaccine every year. We have Seward local providers that have the flu vaccine available now.

Happy Monday!

Congratulations to our new PTO president, Andy Schell! Our first PTO meeting will convene September 22nd at 3:45pm.

We could use a few good subs! If you're interested in subbing for any of the positions at our school (teacher, custodian, aide, secretary), please submit an application! You can find the information here: https://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/departments.aspx?id=21717

We would so appreciate your help covering if we have employees out sick, or in need of personal leave. Thank you!

If you haven't already, please fill out volunteer paperwork. In order to do anything more than drop your child off, you'll need to have this finished as soon as possible. You can find the application online here: https://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/employment.aspx?id=19556. Once you fill out the paperwork, email Molly your confirmation message at mtrostel@kpbsd.k12.ak.us.
