"Flu season is just
around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe
flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The
single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year.
Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and
older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health
insurance companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine
so families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care
provider to receive a vaccine at no cost. Many pharmacies will bill your
insurance and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local
pharmacy). If you are uninsured, or your insurance won't cover vaccines, or you
have Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health
Department at 303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can
also visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/ to find flu shot clinics near
NJHS will be holding their
annual food drive October 7th - October 31! This year, the group will
focus and ask for students to bring in canned soups for our food pantry.
One can of soup can feed two to three family members. What a quick way to
make sure that everyone gets some nourishment for the day! Please have
your student take the canned soups in to their first period teacher. NJHS
members will collect and count all foods to inventory for the school's food
In a separate effort, NJHS
members will also be asking for donations of granola bars, Capri suns, and
bottled water to help the homeless in the Denver area. In partnership
with Sounds of Joy, a music organization in the Commerce City area, all of
these items will be packed to give to area homeless folks in the next few
weeks. Please send these items to your first period class October 7th -
Parents- In an effort to
try to continue to implement the use of ID's, we are going to another
method. Due to the high volume of students that need a temporary ID, we
will now be issuing colored wrist bands according to their grade level which
will be monitored more closely. If your student forgets their ID one time
in a week, they will be issued a wrist band with no consequence. The 2nd time
in a week, they will be given a wrist band and will have to serve a lunch
detention as well as contact home to notify their guardian. The 3rd time in a
week, they will have to purchase a new ID and will receive 2 days of lunch
detention as well as contact their guardian.
Have you lost a jacket,
lunch box, or hoodie? You may find it in our lost and found bin located
behind the main stairs in the main entry area. Starting Friday, October 3rd
and every Friday thereafter, all items in the Lost and Found bin will be
donated to charity.
