School year ends
Today is the last day of school for students. Teachers are due to finish work Friday. This is time to make sure all library books and texts are returned and check the lost and found.
Contact individual schools to find out how long the support staff will remain at work and when students need to return to begin registration or athletic activities at summer's end.
Hepatitis shots needed now

This is a new state requirement and a change from last fall. Every child must be completely immunized or in a state-approved waiting period between shots or have a valid medical or religious exempt on file.
Children who do not meet the above criteria will be excluded from school.
Vaccinations are available at no cost through the Kenai Health Center or consult your family physician. Hours for the public health shot clinics are in Kenai from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the clinic downstairs from Kenai City Hall at 210 Fidalgo Ave. or in Soldotna from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Thursdays at the Soldotna Elks Lodge at 44640 Parkway.
