Thank you to everyone for helping Mrs. Dolan out as she orients to the role, learns about our team, and gets to know our kids.

COVID Clinic and Vaccine Information

Vaccine Clinic Update

Below you will find the January COVID-19 vaccination clinics at school sites throughout the city. Due to the high demand for vaccinations at this time, pre-registration IS REQUIRED because the doses available at each site are limited. Vaccination sites with links below are available for anyone to sign up. Vaccination sites without links are 2nd shot clinics and are not accepting new patients. The latest confirmed locations include:

Beth Moffett made a slip school can use to confirm child vaccinations with the school. Please feel free to use it. Please make a copy before using it.


What are the requirements for quarantining with 5-11 year olds?

Once children ages 5-11 have been fully vaccinated (i.e., 2 weeks following their second vaccine dose), if they are subsequently identified as a close contact and are asymptomatic, they will be exempt from testing and quarantine protocols (including Test and Stay). Vaccinated children who are not close contacts also have a modified list of symptoms to be monitored for, and should follow testing and quarantine response protocols if they are experiencing any of the following: fever (100.0° Fahrenheit or higher), chills, or shaking chills; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; new loss of taste or smell; or muscle aches or body aches. These individuals may also seek clinical guidance to assess the need for PCR testing if they have other possible symptoms of COVID-19.
