Protecting Your Family Against the Flu

Cold and flu season is here. Please consult with your child’s physician to find out when flu shots will be available for your family. Students with chronic health conditions, including asthma, and those who are immunocompromised are highly encouraged to obtain a flu shot early.

Snow Make up Days

The Francis Howell School District has designated the following days, in the 2014-15 school calendar, as make up days, for snow or other inclement weather. We ask that families, please avoid scheduling vacations or other events on these dates, so that your children will not have to miss school should we need to use these days for makeup. Thank you for your help in this matter.
