Oregon Healthy Teens Survey

On April 9th the 8th graders will be taking the Oregon Healthy Teen Survey in their Social Studies classrooms. This is a survey given to us by the state of Oregon health department. Students all over Oregon will be participating. You are welcome to view the survey with Mrs. Storey any time you'd like. You can also opt your child out at any point before the survey day. Please email megan.storey@redmondschools.org if you have any questions.

Nurse's Corner

Spring is in the air! As we know there will be an increase in pollens (trees, grasses and weeds) over the next few months. Your child may suffer from allergies, you know the symptoms: coughing sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat and sometimes hives Please review and update your child’s seasonal allergy and action plans with your healthcare provider and then fill out an Allergy or Asthma Action Plan for your student- which are available in the school office. List allergy, triggers, medications and phone numbers. Make sure your school is aware of your child’s asthma/allergies so they can provide the necessary help, including medication if needed.
