Have Fun and Win Prizes with Summer Reading!
Englewood Schools is partnering with the Englewood Public Library to host a fun summer reading program!
Summer reading goes from June 1-August 7 at the Englewood Public Library (1000 Englewood Parkway) . Students can register for the program starting on May 25 and receive a punch card. For each hour they read, students get to choose a prize! If they read more than ten hours, they get a bigger prize. The school that reads the most hours over the summer gets a trophy!
Students can also check out backpacks from the library that are stocked with games, puzzles, and activities to keep the fun going all summer long!
The City will also be serving FREE LUNCH to anyone under 18 years of age out front of the Civic Center each weekday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.. Enjoy lunch on the lawn and then come inside the library for fun programs starting at 1:00 p.m.

Important Information about Immunizations
Immunizations are an important part of our children's and the community's health. Colorado law requires students attending a public, private or parochial school to be immunized against certain vaccine preventable diseases.
Specifically, incoming kindergarten students and sixth graders are due for vaccines before coming back to school for the 2016-2017 school year.
Englewood Schools provides full-day kindergarten for free at all four of our elementary schools. Watch this video to learn more about kindergarten in Englewood Schools.
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.
