SEHOME MARINER MEMO
10/25 - 10/29/2021
We pulled off our first dance since we shut down school in March of 2020 thanks to the hard work and dedication of our student leadership class, our leadership teacher, Max Zentner, our incredible staff, our parent volunteers, and each student who showed up to the dance! We had a lovely evening dancing on the baseball field under the stars! The weather cooperated and so did the students. I am so thankful that we could be together again in this fun way and return to some sort of normal high school events. We learned a lot from this event and will continue to refine our processes in the future. It was so fun to see kids being kids- dancing, racing through the outfield, singing, and being together!! There are a few pictures of the dance below.
This week we continue our homecoming events with dress-up days. There are several events this week- including concerts- Band (Monday at 7:00 pm), Choir (Tuesday at 7:00 pm), and Orchestra (Wednesday at 7:00 pm). All concerts take place in the Sehome theater. There are sporting events throughout the week. You can find all of those events on sehomeathletics.com The Sehome staff will take on the Sehome Slowpitch team in an epic battle on Wednesday at 3:45 PM at the Sehome. Friday, we will have an assembly with class dances, celebrations, and other fun events. This event is for Sehome students only this year. We will not be having parents or other visitors attend this event. Friday at 3:30, we will have a tailgate in the bus loop. Students can play games, eat some food, and then ride a rooter bus or drive over to Civic for the football game. It is bound to be an exciting week! We look forward to our 2nd homecoming celebration in the new building.
As always, reach out with any questions, comments, or feedback. Let's make it a great week!

REMINDER FROM SCHOOL NURSE
MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL
When a student requires medication at school, either prescription or over the counter (OTC), parents/guardians must return a completed medication authorization form with directions from a licensed health care provider (LHCP) to Sehome. One exception is that certain OTC medications that are self-administered do not require LHCP instructions, but they do require a parent/guardian to complete the medication authorization form. There is no situation that a student taking medications at school does not need a medication authorization on file.
The privilege of students self-caring their medications, whether prescription or OTC, requires students to take their medication as instructed on the authorization and being aware that they may not share their medications with anyone. Medications brought to school must be in the original prescription container or manufacturers labelled OTC container. Medication authorizations expire at the end of the current school year, or sooner as per LHCP instructions.
Link to Medication Authorization Form can be found here.
