    Health Updates: Information about flu season and Enterovirus D68 

     

     
    Influenza:

    Flu season is just around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health insurance companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine so families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care provider to receive a vaccine at no cost.  Many pharmacies will bill your insurance and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local pharmacy). If you are uninsured, or your insurance won’t cover vaccines, or you have Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health Department at 303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can also visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/ to find flu shot clinics near you.

    Bishop's Aquaponics System 

    This summer with funds from the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant, Bishop Elementary installed an aquaponics system in its community garden.

    Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. (Wikipedia)

    The aquaponics system is being used at Bishop in the 21st CCLC program by incorporating science and math with hands on, project-based learning all while growing food for one of their after school clubs. 
     
    Watch this video for a fun explanation of how aquaponics works.
