Winter weather is here, so we want to take this opportunity to provide you with information about how decisions are made and communicated when the weather is severe. This fall, we asked families to complete a winter weather survey in order to collect data regarding family preferences for school closings during winter weather cold days. As a result of the data we collected, we are moving the school closing guidelines so that we will consider closing schools at negative 25 degrees as opposed to a Wind Chill Warning (minus 35 degrees or colder).

Have you gotten your flu vaccine this season? If not, now's the time. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that anyone 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccination to prevent the flu as well as flu-related complications that could lead to severe illness, hospitalization and even death. By getting a flu vaccine for yourself and your entire family you can prevent flu-related illnesses, missed work and school due to flu. In addition, when most of us are immunized in the community against the flu, it protects those who cannot fight diseases or get immunized, such as babies too young to be immunized, those with weak immune systems, and those who cannot receive the vaccine for health reasons.
