From the Health Clinic

Welcome back Skippers and families! As we look forward to an exciting new school year, just a few reminders:


Please update the school with any pertinent health information about your student(s). This can be done online through Infinite Campus or you can email me. Feel free to contact me at any time if you would like to discuss something personally.


If you child received any new immunizations over the summer, please bring a copy to the school office or email one to me directly. If you are objecting from any/all immunizations, please email me and I will forward you the appropriate paperwork.


If your child requires any medication to be administered at school, please complete the Medical Authorization Form on the school website (Departments-Health Services-hyperlink for form on this page). This form must be completed and signed by both the parent and physician.


If your child requires an inhaler or epi-pen, please complete the appropriate form(s) on the school website (Departments-Health Services-hyperlink for form on this page).


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Nurse's office.

Chromebooks Are Homebound

In an effort to streamline the relationship between school and home, Chromebooks will be taken home starting this fall. Many educational applications students use today are web based, making Chromebooks apt for how modern educators instruct and how modern kids learn. If you have a student in grades 6-12, please complete the link below and your students can pick up their Chromebook when they are released.
