Author Raina Telgemeier Visiting Talley Street on October 22
Talley Street Families, Faculty, and Staff,
We are thrilled to announce that best-selling graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier will be visiting our school on Tuesday, October 22, for the On the Same Page program! If you would like to order a copy of her new book Guts, please send in the attached order form to the media center by Wednesday, October 16.
Important note: Raina will not be able to sign any books during her visit due to an injury. Thank you for understanding!
If you have any questions, please email Jill Hanson, Talley Street Media Specialist.
From the School Nurse
Please return the green health cards as soon as possible to your child's teacher, Ms. Parks at the front desk or myself in the clinic (just down the hall from the front desk)
If your child has asthma, severe allergies or Seizures, please have your pediatrician or specialist complete a new action plan. These have to be updated each school year.
If your child has asthma or allergies requiring epinephrine or albuterol as a rescue, please bring the medications to the clinic so we have life saving medication in case of an emergency. There is a medication authorization form to fill out to accompany these medications. Or if you prefer your child to carry albuterol or epinephrine with them or in their backpacks, please complete the emergency medication form as well so we know where it is stored in case of emergency.
Lastly, if you have any clothing that you no longer need or will be donating, please consider a donation to the clinic. All sizes are needed, particularly shorts and pants.
As always, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
