If your student currently has medication at school it needs to be picked up before the end of school. We will not be able to keep it in the nurse's office through the summer. New blank medication permission forms, asthma action plans and allergy plans will be sent home at the end of school. Please make sure you get these filled out over the summer for the 2019-2020 school year.
