Allergy Season is right around the corner!

It’s hard to focus in school or take a test with watery, itchy eyes and lots of sneezing and a runny nose, headache or sore throat.

Start thinking about those allergy medications now. As pollen levels start to elevate, please make sure your child is taking their allergy medicine/eye drops at home before they leave for school.


Helpful tips:

  • Hydrate: Drink plenty of water to keep fluids in motion so irritants are flushed out.
  • Rest: Get plenty of sleep so that your immune system can function at its peak.

(6-13 years old need 9-11 hours of sleep a night)

  • Clean: Change your pillow cases frequently to stop re-contamination.
  • Bathe: Wash hands and shower or bathe after being out in the pollen.


Here are is a good website to check the current pollen count and get ideas for allergy and asthma sufferers. :

Pants, Pants, Pants!

Do you have any pants your child has outgrown? The clinic is in great need of pants size 8 and larger. Please consider donating any that your child no longer needs. Nurse G would be so grateful!!
