A Note from the Nurses' Office Regarding Medications

Mrs. Bradshaw will be returning non-scheduled medication May 20-21.


All medication kept at school must be picked up by the last day of school. Students are not permitted to transport medications home. Any medication remaining at school after the last student day will be properly disposed of on May 28, 2021. This includes all prescription and non-prescription medications, inhalers and Epinephrine pens.
