Vaccination Appointment Assistance 
Avoca parent and PTC President Ross Friedman has been volunteering with local groups to locate vaccinations for people and sign them up. He is offering to do the same for any community member who has any eligible family member who has yet to obtain a vaccination.

If you are interested, and in order to get a chance to reserve appointments,
please complete this Google doc. Please note that while the district is grateful for this offer from Ross, the District does not officially endorse this and has no contractual or other arrangement with Ross related to this, i.e. he is not on payroll, etc. Any decision to share information with Ross so he can accomplish this for your family member is entirely between you and Ross.
