School Based Influenza Clinic
The Forest County Health Department will be offering free, seasonal flu vaccine at the Laona School on Monday, October 28th, 2019 from 10am-2pm. If you would like to have your child receive a vaccination at the school clinic please pick up a consent form and return it to your school by October 24th, 2019. Anyone who wants to reduce their chances of getting the flu should get vaccinated. The best way to protect yourself and your family from getting the flu is to teach and practice good hygiene, get your family their flu shots each year, keep your children home when they are sick, and help your family maintain a healthy lifestyle. The vaccine information statement is located at the school office, on your school’s website, and can be individually mailed to your household by calling the Health Department at 715-478-3371. If you have questions on influenza vaccination, please contact your healthcare provider, or the Forest County Health Department at the number above.

It is one of 9 Wisconsin schools to receive this honor along with 342 schools nationwide.The National Blue Ribbon School Award affirms the hard work of Laona students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. Schools are nominated by their state department of education and then complete a comprehensive application about school practices. Schools may be nominated as an Exemplary High Performing School, the top schools in a state, or an Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing School, schools making the fastest progress in their state in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Laona’s Robinson Elementary received the award as an Exemplary High Performing School.
