From the Nurse

Parents, please help us to keep ALL students healthy. Check in with your child every morning before they leave for school! Staying home when sick is essential to keep illness, such as COVID-19 and the flu, out of schools and prevent spread to others.


Please keep your child home if they have any symptoms of illness, including:

  • Fever or chills (Temperature 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher)

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea


For more information, check the Red Lion Area School District Health Services Website or speak to your school nurse.


COVID-19:

Please contact the school nurse prior to sending your child to school if:

  • a household member tests positive for COVID-19
  • child is testing for COVID-19
  • child tests positive for COVID-19
  • child has been identified as close contact to an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19

The Federal government is providing every home in the United States with four free at-home COVID tests. If you would like to receive these free tests, please follow this link to register.


Physical Forms:

Attention 5th grade parents: Physical examinations are required in grades K or 1st, 6th, and 11th in accordance with state regulations. All current 5th grade students need a physical (well-child exam) that is dated after August 23, 2021. Please have your child’s pediatrician or primary care physician fill out this form and return it to your child’s school nurse. The after visit summary (AVS) of the well child exam from your child’s Health Portal can be accepted as well.


If you are a parent of an incoming kindergarten student: All incoming kindergartners for the 2022-23 school year need to have a physical and a dental exam both dated after August 23, 2021 submitted to your school nurse by the first day of school. In addition, your child needs to have proof of required immunizations submitted by the first day of school, as well. The required immunizations are DTap, IPV, Hep B, MMR, and Varicella. PA DOH School Vaccination Requirements.


Sunscreen: If you want your student to wear sunscreen during a trip or activity it should be applied before the student comes to school. If sunscreen needs to be re-applied during school hours, Section 1414.10 of the PA School Code allows for the use of a non-aerosol topical sunscreen product applied by students in school if: The product is approved by the FDA, the parent/guardian must submit the completed Guardian Sunscreen Form . Please provide the sunscreen with your student’s name written on it and the sunscreen permission form so your child may apply the sunscreen.

Summer Reading Tips


  1. Read Aloud to Your Child : Set aside time every day to turn off screens and read together as a family.

  2. Celebrate Books: Be creative and bring the book to life!

  3. Book Clubs: What could be better than sharing a good book with a good friend? After reading the book, get together to discuss it.

  4. Snail Mail: In our digital age, we don’t receive personal letters very often but kids would love a personalized letter from a family member or friend.

Dental News

WHAT IS MOM-n-PA?

MOM-n-PA is an annual two-day free dental clinic for underserved Pennsylvanians in which dental treatment is provided at NO COST to individuals who cannot afford dental care.


Treatment is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. It is expected that hundreds of individuals will be attending this year's event, so please come early!

Patients do not pre-register.


All services are provided free of charge by a host of dedicated volunteers.


Our next mission has been scheduled!

It will be held on Friday June 10th & Saturday June 11th, 2022 at the York Expo Center.


Reminder: Parents or Legal Guardians: Please remember the state of PA requires that students receive a dental exam upon entering first grade, entering third grade, and upon entering seventh grade. This exam must be completed within one year before the start of school. Any exam done after August 23, 2021 will meet the requirements. If you do not have a dentist, a school dental screening done by the School Dental Hygienist will meet state requirements. Click on the link to access the dental form.

Transportation News

Transportation for the 2021/2022 school year


There are times when we are asked if a new stop can be made. This type of request may take a minimum of two weeks to coordinate and process the information (weather permitting). Such requests would require us to go out and look at a house location to make a better determination if the request can or cannot be done. We ask if you would help us locate you easier, by ensuring your address is clearly posted, and no less than 3 inches tall and visible from both directions and not obstructed from trees, shrubs etc.


Please remind your student(s) of proper bus stop behavior by standing at the stop, and not playing games or horsing around and not going onto or disturbing someone else’s property.


Also, please remind your student(s) there are several bus rules and one of them are that there is NO food nor drink permitted on the school bus. There is the potential for another student to have an allergic reaction to that item.

Inclement Weather

The new notifications system will follow the districts guidelines that are sent out via Skyward and will also be updated via the districts web page at www.rlasd.net; Twitter: @rlschools and Facebook: Red Lion Area School District. Please ensure your contact information is updated in Skyward.
