A Note from the Nurse

1. No student is to have medication (prescription or non prescription) in their back pack, purse, or pockets at school. The consequences of having medication at school could lead to expulsion.


2. Non-expired medication in the original bottle can remain in the health room for administration during the school day after completion of the district approved medication form. This can be found on our school website under the Nurse's Station tab or in the health room.


3. As flu season approaches, please report all absences greater than 2 days due to illness to the school nurse. We are trying to keep our students healthy! 821-0610


Thank you!
