As a reminder, tomorrow, Wednesday, July 14, is a key date for our middle school families.
First, this date marks five weeks before the first day of school. In order for eligible students (age 12+) to be fully vaccinated by the first day of school (Wednesday, August 18), they must receive their first dose of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine by Wednesday, July 14.
