Optional Flu Shots for Students

It is our pleasure to offer on-site flu vaccinations to Pass Road Elementary students this year on October 30, 2020. Flu clinics will be offered at each school location during school hours. Health Heroes flu vaccination clinics are completely voluntary and are offered to ALL students (virtual or traditional) who return a consent form, regardless of their insurance coverage.

Why get a flu vaccine?

The best way to minimize or avoid the spread of flu is to get an annual flu vaccination. Each year the vaccine protects against new strains, therefore, the vaccine should be administered annually.

Who is Health Heroes, Inc.?

At Health Heroes, we specialize in on-site vaccination clinics. Vaccines are provided at NO COST to students, parents, schools or local/state government. We bill both Medicaid and private insurance; however, we never bill students or parents for any out-of-pocket expenses or deductibles. Qualifying uninsured students can be given the vaccine, free of charge. Although student participation is voluntary, these vaccinations are recommended to help keep schools healthy and cut down on high absenteeism.

What type vaccines will be given?

We offer Quadrivalent IIV Vaccine. This can be selected on the consent form. All vaccines given are preservative-free, Mercury-free, Thimerosal-free and administered by state-licensed nurses.

What do you need to do to participate?

If you wish for your child to participate, please COMPLETELY fill out and sign a consent form. These forms need to be returned to your child’s school prior to the clinic date to secure a dose for your child. For further information please visit our website https://www.healthherousa.com/ If you have additional questions, please contact Health Heroes at 334-558-5446. We hope to see your child in clinic!

Thank you,

4 Types of Bullying Verbal Bullying

What It Is: Verbal bullying involves ongoing name-calling, threatening, and making disrespectful comments about someone's attributes (appearance, religion, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, etc.).

Example: When a child says to another child, "You're really, really fat, and so is your mom."

Physical Bullying

What It Is: Physical bullying involves repeated hitting, kicking, tripping, blocking, pushing, and touching in unwanted and inappropriate ways.

Example: A child gets pushed down by another child who is wanting to beat him up on the playground after school.

Relational Bullying

What It Is: Relational bullying involves deliberately preventing someone from joining or being part of a group, whether it's at a lunch table, game, sport, or social activity.

Example: A group of girls in school keeps talking about a weekend sleepover treating the one uninvited child as if she were invisible.

Cyberbullying

What It Is: Cyberbullying involves berating someone by spreading mean words, lies, and false rumors through e-mails, text messages, and social media posts.

Example: When someone tweets or posts, "John is a total loser. Why is anyone hanging out with him? He's so weird."

What can you do as a parent? If your child does approach you about being bullied or about someone else being bullied, be supportive, praise his courage for telling you, and gather information (without getting angry or accusatory). Emphasize the difference between being a tattletale who is just trying to get someone in trouble and talking to an adult who can help. Always take action with bullying, especially if it becomes severe or persistent, by contacting your child's teacher or principal first to monitor the situation until it stops.

Check In/out Policy

Checking out your child? Be sure it’s for a good reason...missing instructional time means missed LEARNING! Please try to schedule your doctor appointments after school. Also, please remember that we do not allow checkouts after 2:00p.m.

Transportation Changes

For your child’s safety, if you have transportation changes, please send a note to your child’s teacher. This note will need to be sent in prior to the transportation change. There can be no transportation changes over the phone, and we must receive them before 1:00p.m.

Mask Hygiene

The CDC recommends that face masks that aren’t disposable be washed every day. Here are some of the guidelines found on their website:

  • You can include your mask with your regular laundry.

  • Use regular laundry detergent and the warmest appropriate water setting for the cloth used to make the mask.

  • Or you can prepare a bleach solution by mixing 4 teaspoons of household bleach per quart of room temperature water. Soak the mask in the bleach solution for 5 minutes.

  • Rinse thoroughly with cool or room temperature water.

  • Make sure to completely dry mask after washing. You can dry in the dryer using the highest heat setting and leaving it in until completely dry or;

  • Lay flat and allow to completely dry. If possible place the mask in direct sunlight.

Follow Five Steps to Wash Your Hands the Right Way (www.cdc.gov/cleanhands)

Washing your hands is easy, and it’s one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs. Clean hands can stop germs from spreading from one person to another and throughout an entire community—from your home and workplace to childcare facilities and hospitals.

Follow these five steps every time.

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
