We have recently received notification of at least one confirmed case of COVID-19 in students or staff at Fruit Street School. Fortunately, there are no close contacts identified and Fruit Street will remain open.
Recent approval now allows children 12 and older to receive the vaccine. The City of Bangor Public Health and Penobscot Community Health Center will be holding free vaccination clinics at BHS on Friday, May 14, from 11:30-1:30 (second dose June 4); and JFDS and WSCS on Friday, May 21 (second dose June 11) time to be determined. Principals will provide the needed forms and additional information. You may also contact the nurse at your child’s school for more information. Further information about the vaccine can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/vaccine-benefits.html .
Please stay safe and be well.
