Seasonal flu vaccination clinics will be held during the school day at all Newton Public Schools beginning in late September. Students in Kindergarten through grade 12 may receive vaccine.
The Zervas School clinic will be on Thursday, October 24th. Each student to be vaccinated must have a parent/guardian complete two forms:
Vaccine administration record/Insurance form.
Forms are available in the school nurse’s office, or may be downloaded at www.newtonma.gov/flu. You may electronically complete the form, print, sign and return. Forms are due to the School Nurse Tuesday Oct. 22nd.
Only the flu shot (no nasal spray) will be offered at school this year. The Vaccine Information Statement about the flu shot, and additional information for families including tips on preparing kids for a shot is available at www.newtonma.gov/flu or in the school nurse’s office. There is no cost to receive the vaccine, but insurance information is requested. All students, regardless of insurance status, are invited to receive vaccine with parent permission.
Students are not required to receive flu vaccine, however the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends flu vaccine for all people age 6 months and up. There are many places to get a flu vaccine including at school, your primary health care provider or community clinics. For additional clinic dates for the whole family, visit www.newtonma.gov/flu.
In addition to vaccination, it is important to practice good hand hygiene and cough etiquette by washing hands often; covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the arm; and staying home when sick.
OVER 25 AUTHORS & ILLUSTRATORS WILL VISIT NEWTON PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS!
Newton Public Schools’ Creative Arts & Sciences* is dedicating Wednesday, November 6, 2019 to recognize and celebrate the importance of books in our children’s lives. We know that students are uniquely inspired when they’re given the opportunity to meet the authors and illustrators of books they’ve read. A wide range of authors and illustrators will be visiting schools across the district during the day to talk about the writing and illustrating process – from idea to published work. Julie Berry is coming to Zervas and will be presenting to all grades in the morning.
At the end of the afternoon, all students and parents are invited to the CAS Authorfest Book Sale and Signing Event, held at the Zervas Library from 3:15 PM – 5:30 PM.
No purchase is necessary to attend. It is the intention of Newton Public Schools that no student is denied participation in school-sponsored activities due to inability to pay. Please contact Dr. Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org for financial assistance for the book sale.
*CAS AuthorFest is made possible by a grant from the Newton Schools Foundation, a contribution from The Village Bank in Auburndale, and your generous contributions to our PTO.
