In Case You Missed It

Jubilee Sports Update

Our 6th grade flag football team’s game was rescheduled from last week to this week due to the opposing team not having enough players to play, they are looking to get their first win this week as they face Highland in the last game of the season on Wednesday (4/3) 3:15pm at Chinook on the small soccer field.

Our 7th/8th grade flag football team faced off against Highland in the sun, rain, and hail on Wednesday (3/27). It was a back-and-forth game; each team took turns scoring touchdowns. A turnover late in the game by Chinook turned the tide for Highland and they ended up winning by one touchdown, the final score being 42-35 Highland. Our 7th/8th flag football team faces off against Odle for the final game of the season this week on Wednesday (4/3) 3:15pm at Chinook.


Bellevue School District partners with the Washington State Department of Health to monitor and support student immunizations. Now is the time to catch up on immunizations!

Talk with your health care provider to find out which vaccines your child needs. Use yearly checkups and other visits, such as sports physicals, to make sure your children have all the immunizations they need.

Request a copy of your child’s immunization record from your health care provider so you can keep track of their immunization history. Or sign up for https://MyIRmobile.com , which gives you online access to your own and your family’s immunization records. Learn more at https://doh.wa.gov/immsrecords

Children under 19 years of age in Washington are provided with all recommended vaccines at no or low cost at one of Washington state’s Childhood Vaccine Program providers.

Health care providers may charge an office visit fee and a fee to give the vaccine, called an administration fee. If you can’t afford the administration fee, you may ask for it to be waived.
