Health Room

Flu Vaccine Clinic

Information was sent home in August about the upcoming influenza vaccination clinic offered by Health Hero PA in our Red Lion schools. This program is a voluntary program at school to help prevent the flu, a common disease that impacts student absenteeism. To help you keep your child well, Health Hero will be providing injectiable flu vaccinations on Tuesday, October 8th at the Red Lion Area School District. To take part in this program, please return the consent forms that were sent out or contact your child's school nurse for another one to be sent home with your child(ren).

Medication Policy Reminder:

Please do not send medication to school with your child. School policy states that any medication must be brought to the health room by an adult. This includes over-the -counter medications, too.

Parent reminder: All Kindergarten and 6th grade students need to submit a completed physical form along with updated immunization records by November 15, 2019.

Halloween Safety for Kids:

Children love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy! Give your kids some precious Halloween memories that they'll have for life.

Some of your kids already know things that they can do to be safe, like how to cross the street, not to talk to or go with strangers and things like that. Here are some tips that we have just for your kids, to help keep them safe on Halloween night! You are never too young to learn!

* Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick, or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.

* Never, ever go into a stranger's house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it's okay. There are some people in life that aren't very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Always make sure that your adult is within sight when you go out trick-or-treating.

* Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you.

Morning Drop-Offs

In the interest of safety, it is very important that only two cars at a time are unloading to drop off students near the mailbox in the morning. If students are let off prior to that point, then children are walking unattended through our parking lot while cars are still moving, which is not allowed. This line is the "fast lane" for those parents that need to drop as soon as the bell rings and leave the school area. If you are waiting till the buses leave and want to drop at the front of the school, please park in the parking area and wait for all buses/other vehicles to leave upon entering the circle area. Please do not wait in the "fast lane" as you will hold up that line for those needing to exit quickly.

In addition, please remain in the line and do not pass other cars, as this is unsafe as well. The only place that students should be dropped off while buses are out front is near the mailbox. Please do not pull into the handicap parking spots to drop off students. In the event of bad weather, once all buses have unloaded, you may pull around to the front of the school and drop students at the front door. However, this can only be after all buses have unloaded. It is important that everyone follows these rules in order to keep all students at NHW safe.

School Store

Students will be shopping after lunch. If you wish your child to shop, please place money in an envelope marked with the amount inside and your child's name on the front. Please do not send large amounts of cash. ($5.00 is recommended) Most items are less than $1.00.

We thank Mrs. Conley, our PTO President, this year for helping to organize this event.
