Parents/Guardians of 7th and 8th Grade Students:
On Monday, September 13, 2021, from 8 – 11 a.m., District healthcare partner, Affinia, will be at your school to offer free, Pfizer Covid-19 vaccinations to students age 12 and older.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Pfizer (two-shot) vaccine and sanctioned it for people as young as 12. Although the vaccine is NOT mandated for students, it is highly encouraged. Medical experts tell us, vaccination is the most important step in protecting our students and school communities from the virus.
If your student is eligible and you are interested in having him or her vaccinated, please complete the attached electronic permission form. You are welcome to accompany your child to school on vaccination days (please wear a mask and submit to screening), or, you may simply sign the form in advance. We MUST have your signed form on file before your student can receive the vaccine. (The second shot will also be made available at school on or after October 4.)
Once again, the vaccine is highly encouraged as an important step in maintaining a healthy school environment for your student and for the Compton Drew school community. If you have any questions, please contact call Student Support Services at 314-345-5656.
As always, thank you for your understanding and support.
Susan Reid, Principal
Compton Drew Middle School
