Pick up Medication(s) in the Health Room

Dear Parents/Guardians:  This is a reminder to please come by the health room the last day of school to pick up your student’s medication(s).  An adult must pick up the medication(s). We cannot send them home with your student and any medications left after the last day of school will be discarded.

A new Health Care Plan and an Authorization Medication Sheet, based on the 19-20 school year calendar can be picked up in the health room or found on the district website.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Also, if your student develops a new condition over the summer, please visit the District 20 website to obtain the proper medical forms so that they can be in place for the start of school in August 2019.
