As this school year comes to an end we want to send you some important health reminders.

Medications will be sent home in your child's backpack on Friday, June 9, 2023 if you have not picked them up before then. Please check their backpacks upon arrival home. All CONTROLLED medications must be picked up in the front office by 12 pm on Monday, June 12, 2023. Any medication left after this date will be disposed of unless other arrangements are made.

Care plans, Medication Administration forms and Unique Mealtime Needs forms must be submitted yearly. If you need a specific healthcare plan that is not linked here, please reach out to your school nurse.

We will begin accepting medications on August 17, 2023. Please make sure that all medications are in a labeled prescription box/bottle or they cannot be accepted. Please drop off the medication administration form with the medication at the front office.

If you have a student who is enrolling as an out of state transfer, a NC Health Assessment form and an immunization record is required to be submitted within the first 30 days of school.
