This is [DISTRICT NAME OR SCHOOL NAME] with a very important message. [DISTRICT NAME OR SCHOOL NAME] has teamed up with E3 Alliance, Schoolhouse Pediatrics and Healthy Schools to offer your child a no-cost Influenza (Flu) vaccine at school. This vaccine is recommended to help keep our community flu free this school year and “Kick the Flu!”

Healthy Schools has made it as convenient as possible to offer this FREE service at Leander Independent Schools. Your child should have brought home a consent form for the Flu vaccine with them from school.

If you would like your child to receive the vaccine, please complete the form, and have your child return it to school. Healthy Schools will take care of the rest -- and there’s no cost involved.

Nurses will be vaccinating students in [DISTRICT NAME OR SCHOOL NAME] schools beginning [DATE].
