To receive the vaccine, two forms must be turned in by November 12, 2021:

  1. CONSENT FORM: Please download, print, and sign the consent form at this link
  2. FERPA FORM: Students are also required to bring a FERPA consent form signed by a parent/guardian. It can be found at this link

Printed copies of both forms are also available in the school offices and will be sent home in folders next week. Parents, if available, please send a copy of your child’s health insurance information card (front and back) to vaccine clinics. Health insurance is NOT required to receive the vaccinations, and there is no charge to families for the vaccine.  IF YOU COMPLETE THE FORMS IN THE SCHOOL FOLDER AND RETURN THEM TO THE SCHOOL BEFORE NOVEMBER 12, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE THE FORMS LINKED IN THIS EMAIL. 

Please note:  parents may not attend the FPS COVID-19 vaccination clinics, these clinics will be held following the same protocol as district flu clinics.  If you wish to be present with your child for their COVID-19 vaccine, parents may opt to visit one of many local clinics and pharmacies that are providing the vaccine.
