OPT-OUT OF STUDENT DATA COLLECTION FOR CDE LAWSUIT
In April 2012, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association (Plaintiffs) filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE).

FROM OUR NURSES, VIA THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL & PREVENTION (CDC)
Please take a minute to share this flu message with family and friends. Now is the time of year!

Did you know? That anyone even young, healthy adults can get sick from the flu and spread it to others. Buzz buzz (text message: You coming out tonight? I can't I have the flu. My niece and girlfriend have it now too.) The short time it will take you to get a flu vaccine. Can help protect you and the ones you love. The flu vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu. #GetAFluVax
