Help Families with Increased Food Costs During the Summer
With summer approaching, parents are beginning to stock up on foods their children will eat while not in school.  If you’re wondering how you’ll feed your growing kids good food all summer, think about 3SquaresVT, which helps Vermont families on tight budgets put three healthy meals a day on the table. Many communities also have summer meal programs that serve free food to kids. To find out more about 3SquaresVT or a summer meal program near you, dial 2-1-1 or visit www.vermontfoodhelp.com.

Being immunized at check-ups with your health care provider helps to keep your children healthy, and protects our community.  Vermont's immunization regulation requires all 7th grade students to have a Tdap booster and a second dose of Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine before entering 7th grade.  You can mail, email, or fax a copy of the immunization record to Andrea Vadnais, BFA Fairfax, 75 Hunt Street or fax # 802-849-2611.
