NURSE RX

All medications that have been housed in the nurse's office must be picked up by parents. Medications cannot be sent home with students. It would best if these meds could be picked up by the last day of school Friday, May 18.


Students that have immunizations due over the summer will be receiving notices by mail. Any students on religious exempts will receive forms to be notarized and signed after July 1st. Any forms notarized before that date will not be accepted in the fall and will have to be re-done.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the information above you can call or e-mail me at 892-9705 or Nancy.Moore@matsuk12.us.

LIBRARY PAGES

It has been a great year in the library! Thank you for all of the support for our book fairs this year! Please consider signing up for the Summer Reading Program Reading Rocks! At the public library this summer. It's fun and kids that keep reading over the summer don't have the slide in reading skills in the fall. I hope everyone enjoys their summer time and keep reading!
