Mid-week notes:

MEDICATION REMINDER:


A quick reminder. If a student has medication in the clinic, medications are only good for one school year and should be picked up prior to the last day of school. All medications must be picked up by an adult per TN state guidelines. For parents picking up prescription medications, please have an ID on hand. If your student had an over-the-counter medication that you do not need at home, would you consider donating the remainder to the faculty/staff medicine cabinet? If so, please let us know!


Any medication not picked up by the end of the day Tuesday, 5/24 will be either donated or discarded per the WCS medication protocol. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns
