Rapid testing and vaccinations continue
With the onset of summer, some may wonder when and where they or any family member may be able to be tested for COVID-19 or receive a vaccination for the virus.
There are multiple sites out there, and because of that, we've whittled the information down to two important links.
The place to find information about COVID-19 testing locations is: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/covid-testing-locations-list
Typically, during weekends, the site doesn't have all of its testing sites up-to-date, so check back frequently.
The Davis County Health Department is holding community-based COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics throughout the county. The drive-thru clinic at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington is now closed.
Appointments are encouraged and can be scheduled online at: https://go.usa.gov/xAZFD.
The place to find information about vaccination clinics for COVID-19 is https://www.daviscountyutah.gov/health/covid-19/vaccine
The Davis County Health Department updates that website every morning with the schedule of community clinics where vaccines can be received.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.Nelson Mandela
District moves forward with clear focus, vision
By Logan Toone, Assistant Superintendent
Lucius Annaeus Seneca was a first-century roman philosopher and writer. In one of his letters, he penned an adage that has been rephrased and re-quoted many times over the years. The version recorded in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations reads as follows:
If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable.
A similar principle is brought to life in Lewis Carroll’s well-known book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice – a young girl lost in a surreal and confusing place – seeks directions from the mysterious Cheshire Cat. The exchange that follows illustrates the importance of having purpose and direction.
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to go.
Alice: I don’t much care where --
Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.
We live, work, and learn in a world where there are varying (and sometimes hotly contested) opinions on where we should go and how we should get there. Navigating the winds can be challenging at times, but when we are centered on a clear purpose and direction, we will make it to our desired port.
Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.Albert Einstein
