If you live or work in Napa County, are older than 3 years and need a seasonal flu shot, you can visit one of 10 free vaccination clinics hosted by Napa County Public Health this fall. There are clinics in Napa, Yountville, American Canyon, Lake Berryessa, St. Helena, Angwin and Calistoga.
The flu shot clinics start Sunday, Sept. 18 and end Nov. 7.
A flu shot is a great way to protect your family, and is especially important if you live with someone who is very young or very old, as flu can be particularly hard-hitting for them.
It takes a team to ensure your student is as successful in school as he or she can be. That team includes the student, the school and you - the parent or guardian.
Studies show that students do better when parents are engaged in and supportive of their education. We encourage you to:
- Meet your student’s teachers, either at Back-to-School night or by calling or e-mailing.
- Get to know who is who at the school. The administrators, counselors, teachers, aides and others all play a role in your student’s success.
- Track your child’s progress online through parent portals; frequently check in verbally with your student’s teachers.
- If you think your student needs extra services, ask for an evaluation.
- Set aside a designated time and space to do homework, and ask every night if your student has work to complete.
- If you have time, volunteer at school and/or join the parent-teacher organization.
- Be an advocate. Ask questions, both of your student and the school, and voice concerns early with the appropriate person (teacher first, then
- Demonstrate a positive attitude in your home about education.
- Monitor screen time.
- Encourage your student to read for pleasure.
- Talk with your student about the school day.
