Free Drive-Thru Flu Shots Oct. 9th

Come one, come all! The Nevada County Public Health Department (NCPHD) is conducting a free drive-thru flu shot clinic in Grass Valley on Tuesday, October 9th,  from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (or while supplies last) in the parking lot of Twin Cities Church at 11726 Rough and Ready Highway.


The drive-thru clinic is for adults and children 3 years of age and older. If however, you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the next month, please see your primary care or prenatal care provider to get your annual flu vaccination. Participants will only be able to access the parking lot using the westbound lane off of Rough and Ready Highway; no eastbound access will be allowed due to safety concerns. This is a drive-thru only event; all participants will be required to stay in their vehicles. Again, due to safety concerns, walkups and bicycles will not be permitted.


The intent of this drive-thru event is to practice and evaluate response levels and preparedness of NCPHD staff, and community partners in the event of a large communicable disease outbreak or public health emergency. If a significantly large communicable disease outbreak occurs, such as a pandemic, NCPHD will not want individuals to congregate in large spaces to receive prophylactic medicines. The drive-thru mechanism allows for county residents to receive medicine without ever leaving their car thus protecting not only themselves, but friends, family and the community as a whole. 


A Caregiver Consent Form must accompany child if parent/guardian is not present. To download this form and Flu Consent Forms visit:


We are hoping for a large response from the community, not only to protect residents from the flu, but also to learn valuable lessons and enhance response efforts for future exercises. Public participation is essential to making this NCPHD exercise a success, so please come join us and help fight flu!  For more information or questions please call 530.470.2658 or email For more information about the flu vaccine and why you should get it, visit

Planned Absences

Sometimes life gets complicated.  If you have plans that take your children out of school and they will miss school for 5 consecutive days, please contact the office for an independent study packet.  
The teacher needs two days notice in order to collect the classwork that your student(s) will be missing.  This is very important.  Our school gets attendance credit and your child doesn't fall behind.
Don't hesitate to contact the office if you have questions.  Please remember that illness and bereavement are the only excused absences in the state reporting system.
Thank you.
