  • Hello Parents,

    Just wanted to remind you all that you need to drop by the clinic and pick up your child’s medicine before 2:00pm on the last day of school. If you want to come during the award meds ceremony for your grade level and get it then, that would be great. Epi pens and inhalers will need to wait until the last day of school in case of an emergency. Call me if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Nurse Marsha
