End of the year medication pick-up

posted May 3, 2017, 10:48 AM by Colleen Cleary-Doone

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please pick up any unused medication(s) that your child has in the school office by the last day of school, May 25, 2017.  The school cannot store medication in the office over the summer and unclaimed medications must and will be destroyed.

Remember, if your child needs any medication(s) during the school day, including all over-the-counter medications, such as Tylenol, Benadryl, and Advil, a medication authorization form must be completed and signed by both a physician and the parent/guardian.  These forms are available on the school nurse website and in the school office.  In addition, the medication must be brought to school in the original container, properly labeled with the student’s name.  Plastic bags are not acceptable.

Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment for our students.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurses or the school office.


Thank you,

Colleen Cleary-Doone, MSN, RN

Updated Influenza and Norovirus Information

posted Dec 12, 2014, 8:35 AM by

Well, the cold and flu season is here. Each school is seeing cases of both respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses.  Attached are current guidelines from the CDE and CDPHE.  As with any illness, prevention through hand washing and getting adequate rest is most beneficial.  If you do develop symptoms, it is best to stay home to rest and keep yourself hydrated, while trying not to infect others.  Also, keep in mind that it is not too late to get a flu shot.  It does still provide coverage for the influenza virus, and you can contact the local public health department in Idaho Springs, or your physician to schedule an appointment.

We hope you take a moment to read the attached information sheets, and contact your school's health office with any questions.

Have a happy holiday season and enjoy the winter break!
