News from the Health Office

Medication pickup- All medication must be picked up by 12:00 PM on Wednesday May 26th, 2021. This is the last day of school and it is a half day for students. You can pick up non-emergency medications anytime at your convenience before the last day. If your student needs daily medications and you would like to pick up before the last day of school, the needed number of pills can be counted out and kept in the original RX container here at school.

Medication Disposal- Our school nurse will follow state guidelines and dispose of all medications not picked up by 1:00 PM on the last day of school. Medications cannot be kept in the health office over the summer. Thank you for your understanding.

Medication for 2021- 2022- If medications are needed for 2021-2022 school year, you may obtain new forms from the PSD website. Please visit www.psdschools.org, click on Parents, click on Student Health (scroll down on right side). Scroll down to #6 of the Health Services/Guidelines. You can find forms for the following:

Please fill out the appropriate Health Care Action Plan form. Please also fill out one Authorization to Administer Medication Form for each medication your child will have at school, including over-the-counter medications . All forms must be signed by the student's health care provider, legal guardian, and contain clear dosage and administration instructions.

If your child is missing something, have them check our lost & found bin. Parents can stop by around arrival/dismissal times to look as well! We will be donating what's left at the end of the school year.



The PTA wants to support our Werner families and their businesses. Attached is a directory of businesses owned and operated by our Werner families. We hope that if you have need of any of the services provided by any of these businesses that you give them a call or email. You can also access the directory at this link.

If you have a child who attends Werner or a spouse who works at Werner and you own, or are employed by, a business that you would like to be included on this list, please complete this form https://forms.gle/tM7modi1SHb1X1p99

If you have any questions please email PTA Treasurer, Patti Haswell, at haswellpatti@gmail.com. Please note that this directory is only for families directly affiliated with Werner. Thank you.

Resources for those facing housing and food hardship

The COVID-19 pandemic has created financial hardships for many in our community, leading to housing instability and food insecurity. There are financial resources available to help families and landlords and protections in place to help people stay housed. The PSD Department of Language, Culture, & Equity has worked with community partners to put together resources to support families.

Please see the LCE Family Resources Information (English and Spanish) for information on support with housing, food, and utilities.
