Clinic Information

We are approaching the end of the school year, which means it's about to be medication pick up time. Just a few reminders for students with medicine in the school clinic.

  • It is a GCPS policy that "Students are not allowed to transport medication." Therefore, we need parents to stop by the clinic and pick up any medication by Wednesday, May 24th by 4:00pm.
  • Medications not picked up will be disposed of on May 25th, 2023, by 12:00pm. Please bring a government issued I.D. Please make arrangements for your student's medication to be picked up.
  • Reminder letters will be sent home with your student on Monday, May 8th.
  • Please return no later than Friday, May 12th to the Clinic. Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Also, feel free to donate any of the following items to the Clinic: band-aids, alcohol swabs, baby wipes (unscented), zip-lock bags sandwich and quart size, tissue, and boy's pants sizes 6-10 .
