End of the Year Clean Up in the Nurse's Office

As the school year comes to a close, it’s time to clean out the medication cabinet in the health office. All medications need to be safely returned back to you for the summer. Over the counter medications can be sent home with students on the last day of school, May 20th. Please let me know if you would prefer not to have them returned in this manner. I can set up other arrangements upon request. Please call or e-mail me to let me know if it is NOT okay to send home in backpacks.

Prescription medications (such as pills/tablets, inhalers, Epi-pens, etc) will NOT be sent home with students unless consent is given. Please call or email me to let me know how your child’s medication will return home. This is to ensure the medication arrives safely home without any incidents. My last day in the building will be Monday, May 23rd, and I will be leaving at noon. All medications not picked up by 5/23/16 @ 12pm, will be discarded (per district policy) unless other arrangements have been made with me.

Please contact me with any questions!

Thank you,

Nurse Amanda

De Soto High School Lady Wildcats Basketball Camp

Coach Robie and his De Soto High School Girls’ Basketball staff would like to invite your daughter to attend their summer basketball camp from May 31st-June 3rd. The clinic is for all girls grades 1-12, with different session based on next year’s grade level (see flyer for times and groups).

The Lady Wildcats are coming off their first trip to the state tournament in 32 years and are excited to invite future basketball players to come grow and learn. Regardless of where your daughter is slated to go to high school, all girls are welcome to join us in growing the game of basketball!

Camp objectives will be to improve/teach the fundamentals of the game, provide structured opportunities to implement those skills in scrimmages and drills, and most of all foster a love for the game!

Camp flyers can be printed and mailed to Coach Robie (details on flyer) or you can sign up and pay online by visiting http://dhswildcatnation.com/hq/summer-programs/ and scrolling down to the girls basketball portion!
