Reminders from the School Nurse

All students entering Kindergarten, 6th Grade, and high school need physicals with their shot records on file. Any student entering the school district for the first time, regardless of grade, also needs a physical with his/her shot record on file. All students entering Kindergarten, 3rd, and 7th Grade need dental exams on file. Students will be given forms prior to leaving school in June.

Students who will be taking medication, such as an inhaler, while in school, need a completed MED-1 form on file. This form contains the doctor's order and gives me and the school your permission to treat your child in your absence. This form is available in the main office.

Have a safe and healthy summer and don't forget your sunscreen!
