About Disney’s Newsies

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast). Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right! Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

PARENT INFORMATION

Student Flu Clinic

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Houston County Health Department is partnering with the Houston County School District to provide a flu vaccination program to children at school at no out-of-pocket expense to you. Every year many children are infected by the influenza virus, causing serious illness and missed days of school. Also, an infected child can spread the flu to other members of the family. Vaccination is the best way to protect your child from this potentially serious disease. This year, we are providing an online registration option.

TO SIGN YOUR CHILD UP FOR A FLU VACCINE:

  1. Read the Vaccine Information Statement Influenza (Flu) Vaccine (Inactivated or Recombinant): What you need to know to learn more about the flu vaccine.

The Influenza (Flu) Vaccine (mist, live, Intranasal) will not be available this year.

  1. Complete the online School Based Influenza Vaccine Consent Form found here. Please be sure to answer all of the health questions for the nurses to review. Students with incomplete consent forms will not be able to receive the flu vaccine at the school clinic.
  2. Complete the consent form to the school before the flu clinic date scheduled for your school. Click here to view the schedule of schedule.
  3. If your child is covered by ANY insurance plan, please indicate the name, group number, and policy number on the consent form. Please attach a copy of your insurance card to the online consent form if your child will be receiving the vaccine. This information is for administrative purposes at the Houston County Health Department. The following companies: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, Coventry/Mailhandler’s, United Healthcare (SHBP only), Tricare and Medicaid (Peachstate, Wellcare, CareSource Amerigroup) will be billed for the vaccine administration.

  1. If for some reason your child is given the flu vaccine by another provider before the school flu date, please notify the school so that your child’s consent form can be removed.

**Please note: A child with a severe allergy to eggs or latex will not be able to receive the vaccine in the school clinic.**

If your child is under the age of 9, he or she may need a second dose of the flu vaccine to gain the best protection against the influenza virus. You will be notified if an additional dose of the flu vaccine is needed.

Paper copies are available at the school. If you have any questions, please contact your school Health Tech.

Title 1 Handbook

Affordable Internet Provider Program

For Learners and Families: getinternet.gov

The FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) allows qualifying households to reduce their internet costs by up to $30/month ($75/month on Tribal lands). Getinternet.gov is a simple, easy-to-use website with details on how households can sign up for ACP and find participating providers in their area. Several companies additionally committed to offer ACP-eligible families at least one high-speed plan for $30/month or less, with no additional fees and no data caps. This mean that if households apply their ACP benefit to one of these plans, they would have no out-of-pocket cost for internet.


Additional Resource:

T-Mobile: Free internet hotspots

We believe access to education is access to opportunity. That’s why we’re offering free hotspots and internet to 10 million eligible households. Your child can qualify for Project 10Million through eligibility for the National School Lunch Program, which also can be verified through participation in many government programs.
