Dear Parents,

Spring is definitely in the air and with it many important dates. It is hard to believe but summer is just around the corner and we have already started planning for the next school year.

Third and fourth grade testing dates are listed in this newsletter and we ask that you please make sure that your child arrives on time to school these days. Students arriving late will be unable to go to their classroom until testing is completed. We also ask that you avoid scheduling appointments in the morning on testing days.

Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather with your families.

Educationally Yours,

Kristi Motsch

Reminders about Medications at School

As we go into the spring season, I would like to remind parents about the school district policy for sending in medications to school. This policy states that a note from the parent and/or doctor must accompany the medication. Below you will find information regarding the Medication Policy for Prescription and Non-Prescription Medications.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION can be administered at school, if necessary, following all of these steps:

1. Note from physician with:

a. Name of medication

b. Dosage

c. Time to be administered

d. Side effects

e. Start/End date

f. Signature of the physician

2. Note from the parent giving permission to administer ( with parent's signature)

3. Medication must be in the original pharmacy labeled container.

You may obtain a Request for Administration of Medication by School Personnel Grades k-12 from in the school office or in the PLSD website.

NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION (like cough drops, Tylenol, cough syrup) can be administered, if necessary and requires:

1. Note from parent with:

a. Name of Student

b. Name of Medication

c. Time to be administered

d. dosage to be given

e. Signature of parent and date

2.Medication must be in the original container

3. Dosage must be age and weight appropriate for your child. (i.e., We cannot administer medication to children under 12 if label says: "Do not administer to children under 12, except under the direction of a physician." We need to have a note from the doctor in order to give a dose of medication that is different than the dose stated on the bottle.)

***You may obtain an Administering Nonprescription Medication-Grades K-12 form in the school office or on the PLSD website.

Any questions, please contact the School Nurse:
