The Student Health Service contacted the Parent Programs office on Thursday, November 8th and asked that we post the following information.
Student Health has begun seeing multiple cases of flu-like illnesses. Please see the Student Health Service main page and the flu fact page for more information. This page provides symptoms, treatment and advice on when to access SHS. Protect yourself, know the facts, and learn on how you can help minimize exposure and likelihood of getting the flu.
In addition, students can get a flu vaccination by making an appointment at the Student Health Service (336.758.5218). The cost is $27 and can be paid by cash, check, Deacon Dollars, or can be charged to their student account.
To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
