Flu Shots

The Public Health Nursing Staff from the Wilma P. Mankiller Health Center will be set up in the Front Lobby of the Elementary Building on Tuesday, October 13, rom 3:30-6:30 p.m., and Thursday, October 29, from 1:30-3:30 p.m., to administer flu shots to staff and any adult family or community members. The Center for Disease Control recommends everyone 6 months and older receive a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu, so I would like to encourage each of you to take the vaccine, unless contraindicated to your health and please encourage your family and community members to do so, as well. The WPMHC will not be offering the flu vaccine for children at school, but will have it available for children at their clinic on Mon-Fri., from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; the Adair County Health Department Mon-Fri., 8:00 – 11:30a.m., 1:00p.m. – 5:00 pm; as well as your primary care physicians’ offices.You do not have to have insurance or be a patient of the WPMHC to receive the vaccine, but if you do have insurance the clinic will bill your insurance company directly for the cost of the vaccine.  –Nurse Leach

In addition, silent auction baskets will be set up in the art room for bidding.  Come out and have a great time! We hope to see you there! 

Solving Problems

Help you child make a list of strategies he can use when he gets stuck.  For a math assignment, he might try tools like a number line or find sample problems in his book.  When he’s reading, he could look up words in a dictionary or reread a paragraph.  Tip: If he’s still stumped, he might call a friend or write down his question to ask his teacher the next day.
