Thank you to everyone who made Hickory Loves to Read Night a Success!

Reminders from the School Nurse-

~ Please send your child to school with a mask. It is important that these are appropriately sized for your child. Ear loop face masks tend to work better than the gaiter style.

~ Also, please remember to send a water bottle to school with your child every day. Staying hydrated is important, and drinking fountains are not available for use.

~ If your child has had to borrow clothing from the clinic due to a potty accident or spill, please wash and return these items to school

~ Lastly, if you received a message from me indicating that I am missing your child's most up-to-date immunization record, please make every effort to submit that to school as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help in these important matters!

Amber Walker, RN
