Farmington River Elementary School is hosting a Flu Immunization Clinic with the help of Fairview Hospital on:
Tuesday, October 9th
3 PM – 7 PM
in the Music Room
There is no cost for the vaccine, but we ask that people bring their insurance card if they have insurance. Everyone can get a shot, whether they have insurance or not.

Please wear a short sleeve shirt, or layers, to make administration a little easier.

We do have flu mist available for those 49 years old and younger who meet the health requirements.

If you have any questions before the clinic, please feel free to call Heather Barbieri at (413) 854-9635.


My name is Mrs. Oleksak. While Mrs. Daley is at home with her little boy I will be your children’s   PE/Health teacher. I will be here from August to January.

Fitness Tips: Children should exercise at least 60 minutes a day. They should eat healthy meals and snacks.

Reminders: Children should be wearing rubber soled and supportive sneakers and easy to move in clothing.
