    Flu Shots Coming To John Hay!

    Protect yourself, your child, and your community from the flu! Seattle Visiting Nurse Association will be providing flu shots at John Hay on October 29, 2019 from 12:45-2:25 PM.  Students (ages 4 and older), staff and community members can get the flu shot. All SPS insurance is accepted. Most forms of insurance (including Apple Health and Medicaid) and cash or check ($40) are accepted. The consent form needs to be completely filled out. Families who have no insurance can write “No insurance” and the student can still get a flu shot. All SPS insurance is accepted. A thimerosal-free vaccine is available for pregnant women. The double dose version recommended for adults over age 65 is not available. Forms and additional information available here: Flu information  or School Nurse Kimberly Chin at or 206-252-2107.

    Picture Day

    Picture Day will be Monday, Oct. 7th.  Hard copy photo order forms will go home next week.  If you write a check, your student will need to bring the order form back on Picture Day (not beforehand) to give to the photographer.  Photos can also be ordered online with a credit card by going to and entering Picture Day ID: LS119060Q0.  If you do not order photos, you will still receive an all-class photo and a proof of the individual photo (with instructions on how to order, if you’d would like).

    If your child is absent on Picture Day, Retake Day will be Tuesday, Nov. 12th.
