Summer Reading Opportunity

We have had a lot of students borrow clothing from the clinic this year and most of the items have not been returned. Our supply of pants and underwear is almost completely depleted. If your child borrowed clothing from the clinic and you still have it at home, please wash the items and have your child bring them to the clinic. Keeping a change of pants and underwear in your child’s backpack is recommended so we have a change of clothes readily available in the event of an accident. Additionally, if you have any pants or packs of underwear that you would like to donate to the clinic, we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much!
