| Roy Hall Visits United
Former NFL wide receiver Roy Hall visited United Local Jr. & Sr. High to speak to students in a school-wide assembly. Hall played on the 2002 Ohio State University championship football team and went on to play in the NFL for the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, and Detroit Lions. Speaking to United students, he told his story about growing up, facing life challenges and persevering to be successful. Hall began by telling students that “excellence is a decision.” He also assured them that everyone faces some kind of adversity, but “adversity is a tool…what you have to decide is whether you are going to use your adversity as a tool for destruction or a tool to make you strong and successful?” And finally, Hall warned students about giving their time and attention to the perceptions that flood social media. “Tune out the critics without credentials,” Hall asserted. He explained that there are a lot of observers with opinions who are not qualified to define you. “It’s like going to an Ohio State football game,” Hall added. “Thousands of people come into the game to watch, but only the ones with a credentialed pass get access to the field. They are the ones who control the game and call the shots. Everyone else is just a spectator with an opinion.”

Does my child need a flu shot?
In most cases, yes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu (influenza) vaccine for all children 6 months and older — ideally given as soon as the vaccine is available each year.
Depending on your child's age and health, you might be able to choose between a flu shot and the nasal spray vaccine:
- Nasal spray. The nasal spray flu vaccine can be given to children 2 years and older. It's recommended for healthy children ages 2 through 8 years. If the nasal spray isn't immediately available, the flu shot should be used. Side effects of the nasal spray might include runny nose, cough, fever, wheezing, headache and muscle aches.
- Flu shot. Flu shots can be given to children 6 months and older. Side effects might include soreness, redness or swelling where the shot was given, low-grade fever, or muscle aches.
Keep in mind that yearly flu vaccines are also recommended for adults — especially those who have close contact with young children.

ALERT: Attention - 6th Grade Parents
Now is the time to schedule the Tdap Booster Shot for
