Superintendent’s Call – March 20, 2022

The following is the transcript from the phone message sent out by the Superintendent on Sunday, March 20, 2022.

Good evening WPS staff, students, and families,

This is Superintendent Binienda.

I hope you all are staying healthy and well.

Here is an important message about upcoming COVID vaccine clinics in our schools:

Vaccine consent forms for any student wanting their 1st or 2nd dose of the Pfizer COVID vaccine, or for students ages 12-17, eligible for a booster, need to be returned by tomorrow, March 21.

Vaccine consent forms are located on the WPS website, were sent home and are available at your child's school

A mobile vaccination bus will be scheduled to administer vaccines at your child’s school starting the week of 3/28. The schedule will be posted on the WPS website when it becomes available.

There are also 4 AFTERSCHOOL clinics scheduled this week for families wishing to be present with their child, and for adults wanting their first, second, or booster dose. They are scheduled in each quadrant:

  • Roosevelt School: 3/21 from 3pm-6pm
  • Elm Park Community School: 3/22 from 3pm-6pm
  • Clark Street School: 3/24 from 3pm-6pm
  • Quinsigamond Elementary School, 3/25 from 3pm-6pm

Students who receive their COVID vaccine at any of these clinics will be entered into a drawing for a $3,000 scholarship!

Please contact your school nurse should you have any questions

Thank you for your support in our continued fight against the COVID-19 pandemic
