Note from the Nurse!

Parents:

A few reminders as we enter cold and flu season. Please remember that students are not allowed to bring any medication to school without an order from a physician. The medication must be brought to the nurse by the parent in the original packaging. This includes any over the counter medication such as cough drops. Also remember that your child should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen before returning to school. The same goes for vomiting and diarrhea. This information is also on page 16 of your child’s MOOSE notebook. Thank you for your cooperation and helping to keep our students safe and healthy.

Yearbooks still on sale!

Meadow Creek yearbooks are still on sale for the very low price of $25 thorough the end of January and then the price goes up. Order yours now and get this great low price! Forms are available in the school office.


The yearbook staff would also love your pictures form school events. If you have pictures, please send them to www.hjshare.com. Enter the school code: mcdolphins
