~From the School Nurse~

The Village of Skokie has partnered with Advocate Children's Hospital to operate school-based flu vaccination clinics for students enrolled in Skokie School District 68. This year, the flu shot will be offered at Old Orchard Junior High School on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. 
If your child has not yet received the flu shot and you are interested in your child receiving the flu shot at school, please contact the school nurse at 847-568-7508 for a consent form. Consent forms must be returned to the office by October 31, 2018. Consent forms will not be accepted after this date. Students can also pick up a consent in the Health Office to bring home.
