*Medications (prescription and over-the-counter) cannot be transported on the school bus. A parent or legal guardian must bring the medication to the nurse and sign our form. Medications like Tylenol or Ibuprofen can be left for use throughout one school year. Medication cannot be expired, and it must be in the original container (no zip lock baggies). We dispense medication according to the manufacturer’s label unless you have an order from your doctor stating otherwise.
Please keep your child home if he/she is not feeling well. If found to have a temperature above 100 degrees, and/or illness causing vomiting or diarrhea the student will promptly be sent home. All other illnesses and injuries will be sent to the nurse’s office for evaluation.
Students may be allowed back at school with one of the following: symptom free for 24 hours or a doctor’s note to return to school. Fever must be less than 100 degrees (without the use of fever reducing medication) for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
*Please make sure to keep your current phone number updated in the office. It is important that we are able to reach someone if your child becomes ill or injured while at school.
*We do our best to call parents when appropriate for injuries/illness that occur at school. We do not call for injuries or illnesses that are minor or that resolve while at school.
*Students sent home with head lice cannot ride the bus to school the next day. They will need to be checked by the nurse before returning to class.

Kenzie Calhoun earns National Honors
Congratulations to our own Kenzie Calhoun, who is one of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.
Kenzie earned this recognition by excelling on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classrooms. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.
