Dr. Rachel Herlihy, director of the immunization program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, is urging Coloradans to get their annual flu vaccination. Dr. Herlihy said, "When getting your flu vaccine, it's an excellent time to ask your health provider whether you also should be immunized for pertussis, also called whooping cough. Colorado has seen an epidemic number of whooping cough cases reported, 849 since January.
"We are encouraging adults to ask their doctor about a Tdap vaccination for themselves and to make sure their children are up to date with their vaccinations. It's especially important for families with very young children, who are more vulnerable to whooping cough. Child care workers also should make sure they are up to date on their whooping cough vaccinations," she added
The vaccine is available as a shot or a nasal spray. Flu can strike anytime but is most likely to infect people between October and May.
People at high risk of serious flu complications include young children; pregnant women; people with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart and lung disease; and people 65 years and older.

Decorate your Home or Office for Homecoming
Show your support for MCSD students by decorating your home or office for Homecoming. The theme of Homecoming is Party Rock: Through the Ages. Homecoming week begins Monday, October 1st. One of our goals as a Booster is to partner with the Craig community and help support Moffat County Athletics and Activities, not only monetarily, but through events like this! Your support means the world to the kids of Moffat County.
Changed in MCHS Soccer Games
- We will move the game from 9/27 with Grand Valley to 10/4 @ Loudy Simpson 4:00 so we will have our Homecoming game for our boys on Thursday rather than Saturday. This game will be played prior to the Bon Fire.
- We will move our 10/6 game with Roaring Fork to 10/15 @ Loudy Simpson at 4:00 and finish our regular season with 3 home games.
For the remainder of our games, we will have a bus available for those students who are unable to drive to Loudy Simpson for our home games. The bus will pick up the students in the front of the building after their dismissal time.
I realize these changes are immediate, but I believe that it is what's best for our student athletes as well as the student athletes from Grand Valley and Roaring Fork. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Our remaining schedule of games is attached
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter,
District Director of Athletics and Activities
