MorningStar enrollment open
MorningStar Christian Childrens Academy is accepting children for its preschool program. It will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 24 for any families interested in checking out the preschool. MorningStar is located at Hope Community Church, 17725 44th Ave. W.
The preschool offers morning and afternoon classes, and it accepts children ages 3-5 or 2 1/2 if the child will turn 3 in the coming months. Children with special needs also are welcome, and it is not necessary that the children be toilet-trained. The fall session begins Sept. 12. Contact Molly Weber at 425-743-4715 for registration information and questions.
Vaccinate students in time for school
Snohomish Health District can help keep students healthy at school this year. The health district will offer back-to-school immunizations at its clinics in Everett and Lynnwood by appointment from 8 a.m. to noon, and on a walk-in basis from 1 p.m. to closing Monday, Aug. 29, through Friday, Sept. 9. The clinics are closed on Labor Day (Sept. 5) and on weekends.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany a child to the clinic, and must bring a complete record of the child’s immunizations. If you are unable to accompany your child, you need to fill out a Snohomish Health District authorization form to have another person bring your child to the clinic. The forms are available at both clinics, and the clinics will mail or fax forms on request.
Families with Healthy Options are encouraged to see their health care provider, but will be welcomed at Snohomish Health District. Payment is requested on the day of service in cash or by check. The cost for most immunization services includes an office visit fee, plus an administration fee per vaccine. Medical coupons are accepted, but private insurance is not. Snohomish Health District clinics do not accept credit or debit cards. A sliding fee scale based on household size and gross monthly income is available.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the Main Clinic in Everett at 425-339-5220 or the South County Clinic in Lynnwood at 425-775-3522.
