With the school year quickly coming to a close, please be aware of the following…..
Ø Presently, there are a lot of students with allergy symptoms. I do not have any allergy medications here that I am able to give your student to help relieve their symptoms. If you would like your student to be able to take something, while at school, you must send this in from home with a signed note stating the dosage and the time to be given.
Ø Within the last week of school, I will be sending all prescription and over-the-counter medications home with your student. If you would prefer to pick them up yourself, please let me know.
Ø At the start of school next fall, you will need to fill out a new medication consent form in order for your student to take any medications (prescription or over-the-counter) here at school. This year’s form will not carry over to next fall. If it is a prescription medication, I will also need to have a physician’s consent form filled out. These forms can be obtained from me at Open House in the fall.
Ø All 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will need to have received the Tdap and 2nd Varicella (chickenpox) vaccines by the start of school next fall. The majority of the 7th and 8th graders should already have received these immunizations. Those students who I do not have record of receiving them, should have received a notice in the mail from me within the last month.
