Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe there are only a few weeks of school left. This is a reminder that you will need to come to school to pick up your child's medication by the last day of school, Friday, May 26th. Medications that are not picked up at the end of the year will be disposed of according to the D303 policy. This policy also does not allow medication to remain in the health office over the summer for reuse in the fall. Medication must be picked up by a parent or adult designee with the parent’s permission.

Looking ahead to the 2023-2024 school year, if your child requires medication or any action plans, your child will need new physician orders and action plans for the school year. Forms can be found under health services on the D303 site or linked directly here:





All incoming kindergarten students must present a record of a Complete Health Examination (physical exam) with all required immunizations prior to the 1st day of school.

Students entering into kindergarten or 2nd grade will need a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2024. Current 2nd grade students require a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2023. A vision examination and form is also required for incoming kindergarten students.




These forms can be submitted to the main office or emailed to the school nurse at donna.holloway@d303.org. Please reach out if you have any questions. The health office direct line is 331-228-2304

Thank you and have a Wonderful Summer!

Ferson Creek Health Office Nurse,

Donna Holloway

Calling all 2nd grade musicians!

Over the next few weeks, every current 2nd grader will get the chance to hear a performance by members of our school orchestra AND try each of the instruments offered in our orchestra program: Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass.
