Information from the Clinic
Hello and welcome back to the 2023/2024 Parma City School Year.
This is Cristina Mueller, Supervisor of Nursing at Parma City Schools.
I want to give you important time and dates that we will be at the school to accept your child’s medication. Getting your child’s medication to school early will ensure a smooth transition when school starts.
Date: September 5 - 11th
Time: 8:55 - 3:40
(Kindergarteners at Kindergarten Orientation day)
During this time, the clinic will be open to accept your child’s medication and any supplies needed to provide health care.
When dropping off your child’s medication, each individual medication will need to be in its original container along with an administration form that is signed by their physician and co-signed by parent/guardian. If you need the medical forms please visit the PCSD website under school health forms.
Breakfast & Lunch Information
Students can pack or buy lunches. See more information in the next two columns for purchasing lunches. Students have a half an hour to eat each day for lunch. Some grade levels also have snack time scheduled during the long morning or afternoon.
Breakfast is also served daily from 8:55 - 9:25
You can purchase school meals on My School Bucks - see next column for the online link
The Parma City School District accepts the following form of payment though the links below:
