From the Nurse

We will not send ANY medications home with students at the end of the school year. If you wish to pick up medications (prescription meds, inhalers, epipens, etc.), please stop by the nurse’s office between 8:30am and 3:10pm during the last couple of days of school. Medications not picked up by the last day of school will be properly disposed of. Have a great summer !!!
