Don't forget to pick-up student medications from the health room before the end of the last day of school on Friday, June 8th. We are legally not able to send medications home with the student. Parent must pick up. Any medications not picked up will be disposed of.

Parents of students who take medications and who will be attending summer school are responsible for dropping off the meds at the summer school health room and complete the paperwork giving the staff the permission to administer during the school day. WE WILL NOT TRANSPORT MEDS FROM OUR OFFICE TO THE SUMMER SCHOOL OFFICE.

Thanks for your cooperation!
