Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a wonderful summer!!
To those who have health needs:
With us approaching this new school year, we need your help getting the Physician Authorization Documents filled out by you and your physician if your child is needing to take medication at school even cough drops, please stop by the health office and get documents.
“Does your child need health insurance? District 6 can help you in the process of getting FREE or low-cost health insurance through Medicaid or CHP+. Please contact your school health clerk at 348-1326 or come into health office for a flyer with more information."
Also, we should remind ourselves that it is important to know that there are certain vaccines required by the state of Colorado for entry into school. The Kids Care Clinic (348-1112) is a resource available to all Dos Rios students at no cost to the family. They can offer information about vaccines as well as provide immunizations. There are several informative websites that are great resources for parents—www.ImmunizeForGood.com and www.ColoradoImmunizations.com. In addition, we encourage you to speak with your health care provider regarding any immunization questions. We appreciate your assistance with keeping our school a healthy place to learn.
