Notes from our Nurse

In preparation for next school year, if your student has food allergies or other allergies, asthma, seizure, or diabetes you will need to complete additional health forms located at the following link: If your child will have a prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication for school next year, the doctor must sign a new medication administration form for each new school year.

Please plan to have the medication administration form completed early in the summer, so orders are on file for the first day of school. No medication may be given without a new medication administration form signed by the health care provider and parents each school year. Please email for further questions or concerns regarding your student’s health at school or medications.

If your student will be attending summer school and will need to have access to emergency medications, please contact Benjamin Schneider-

I hope you and your family enjoy a healthy and safe summer.

Field Day

Our Olympic Themed Field Day is on June 1st and June 3rd. Students are very excited!

All classes will be participating in events on both days for about an hour each day. Please have your student bring their water bottle, wear gym shoes and the colors of their country's flag. They can also bring a hat and/or sunglasses.

Due to restrictions, we cannot have parents attending this year but we are sure your student will tell you about all the fun!

Dear Parents,

I wanted to share a reminder for those parents who have medication in the school clinic. At the end of the year, an adult must pick up medication by June 3rd. Medication is NOT allowed to be transported by a child. Medication remaining in the clinic office past the last day of school must be discarded. This includes inhalers and Epipens. Please email Mrs. Ferron (ferronj@sycamoreschools) to set up a date to pick up your child’s medication. It will be brought out to you at the designated time scheduled.
