    Flu Season is approaching

    MCPS has partnered with Healthy Schools to offer flu shots to your child during the school day with the goal of ensuring that flu shots are available to 100% of our district’s students. Help us as MCPS Fights the Flu.

    This year, help your child, our school, and our community by participating in our flu clinic. They take place during the school day, and the copay is $0.

     The 2017-2018 flu season was the worst in a decade, resulting in school closures, high rates of hospitalization, and pediatric death. Be a flu fighter, and protect your child against the flu this season.

    Vaccine Consent Forms have already been sent home and many have been returned. If yours has been misplaced, please contact us for another one or, to learn more & sign up on line, just CLICK HERE!

     The CDC recommends a flu shot as your child’s #1 defense against the flu.
