Health and Wellness Tip of the Week

Nurse Terri here with the health & wellness tip of the week.
 
As we start the school year, I know we’ve all missed seeing one another. Let’s remember we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Air hugs and fist bumps will have to do, as we still need to social distance, mask up, and do our part to stop the spread and keep everyone safe.
 
Any covid-19 questions or health concerns please email: health.student@yacs.org

High Level Speech and Hearing will be conducting mandated screenings on August 12th and 13th.
