Announcements & Upcoming Events
Free Flu Clinic
Tuesday, November 26th from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m., Hunter Elementary hosts the Flu Vaccination Clinic.
Public Health Nursing and the North Star Borough School District joined forces in organizing the clinic before the long holiday weekend to help families stay healthy. Both nasal spray and injectable versions of the vaccine will be available.
Administrative fees for flu immunizations have been waived by the Alaska Division of Public Health through the end of the year. At Tuesday’s clinic, vaccine will be free of charge to children and parents who:
• do not have health insurance;
• have health insurance that doesn’t cover vaccines;
• have insurance but haven’t met their deductible for vaccination coverage;
• have insurance but don’t know if their health insurance covers vaccines or not; or
• have nowhere else to go in the community to receive the vaccine.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns. Have a great month!!

Golden Heart Rotary Springs into Action
Hunter Elementary students will shoot hoops with four new all-weather basketball boards and rims thanks to a generous gift from the Golden Heart Rotary of Fairbanks on September 20, 2012. The new equipment is a welcome upgrade for the popular and well-used basketball courts on the school's south playgrounds.
The idea for the gift was inspired by former president of the Golden Heart Rotary Club, Susan Kramer, who spotted the need for the new equipment while attending a recent picnic at the school.
“Hunter Elementary is very fortunate to have the kindness and support of the Golden Heart Rotary of Fairbanks,” said Principal Jeff Man. “On behalf of the students, families, and staff of Hunter, thank you Golden Heart Rotary for your donation and support of healthy, active lifestyles at our school.”
