Health Office End-Of-Year Reminders
Monday, May 19, 2014 6:30 AM


Dear Parents,

As we are in the midst of allergy season, we wanted to remind you that we cannot give allergy medication (or any other type of medication) to your students without a doctor’s order.  There are many allergy meds that are given once a day so dosing during the school day is unnecessary.  If your child has a cough, please give them the 12 hour suppressant found in a bright orange box located at any Walgreens or Target.  (Ask your pharmacist for details on the 24 hour allergy medication and the terrific 12 hour suppressant).

The following is an example of what not to do in any school in this district~

(The names have been removed and message paraphrased).

I sent some cough syrup to school with xxx today and since no one was in the front office, I had to leave it in xxx’s backpack.  Can you get it so it isn’t carried around all day and give it to xxx at 9:30 and 1:30?

All medications that expire this summer or September will be sent home on the last day of school.  Be sure to check your child’s backpack for this.  Otherwise, medications will be safely stored over the summer for school later this summer when you return.


New this fall we will be excluding immunization non-compliant students October 20th which is consistent with the rest of the district.  Previously we have excluded the first Monday after winter break.  If you complete your child’s immunization series over the summer, please mail or fax them in to either Upper or Lower.  If there are extenuating circumstances pertaining to your child’s immunizations, please call the health office and let us know.

Lost item: A black pocketbook has been found containing an Epi-pen.  It is locked in the health office.  Please give a detailed description of the pocketbook to Paula or the nurse and it will be returned to you.

Have a safe and terrific summer!
