Medication: All medication must be delivered to the school nurse by the pupil's parent/guardian in the original container labeled by the pharmacy or physician. Medication includes over-the-counter medicines or supplements and includes Tylenol, cough drops, and lip balm. Permission forms are available, and are required to give medication that is medically necessary during the school day.
Finally, we started the holiday season. The most important factor in staying healthy is hand washing. Please remind your children to wash their hands before eating. They need to be taught to keep their fingers and toys out of their mouths. We cannot prevent all illnesses that they are exposed to, but these clean behaviors will help.
Have a healthy fall/winter season!
