H1N1 Update

The district H1N1 Pandemic Flu Response Team has developed Instructions for Schools, as well as parent letters (English | Spanish) which outline how we can best prevent and mitigate the spread of both the seasonal flu and the H1N1 flu virus. These materials have been distributed to all principals in preparation for the start of the new school year.

The district will be establishing an information telephone line in addition to ongoing web-based links and resources for school staff and parents. We are currently in discussion with County Health Department officials regarding the feasibility of providing H1N1 vaccinations for our students at school sites. For more information, contact, please visit the County's Health and Human Services Agency H1N1 website or call the district Nursing and Wellness Program at (858) 627-7580.
