A Message From the Nurse's Office!

Attention all Incoming Freshmen!

Welcome to all new students and our new freshman class. All physicals and parent history forms must be in the Nurse’s Office by the first day of school. If you are trying out for sports over the summer the coaches will need a copy of your current physical which has to be within 13 months. No exceptions! Any medication your child will need during school hours must have a doctor order and meds need to be in nurse’s office by first day of school. This does not include Tylenol or ibuprofen. You will receive an emergency contact sheet in August and on the back of that sheet is a parent signature form for your child to receive Tylenol or ibuprofen. We are looking forward to a great new school year and keeping your child healthy!!
