MEDICATION AT SCHOOL:  
Please contact me as soon as possible if your child needs to take medication during the school day.  A School District 80 Medication form must be completed by your child's doctor and signed by you in order for your child to take medication at school.  Children are not allowed to bring medication to school without a doctor's order.  This includes vitamins and over the counter medications such as, Tylenol.  

BIRTHDAY TREATS:
Birthday treats are not allowed at school.  Instead of sending sugary treats to school, consider having your child bring a show and tell item to school on his/her special day to share with the rest of the class. 

SNACKS:
Please send a healthy snack to school with your child for his/her morning snack.  Fresh fruit, fruit cups, applesauce are healthy snacks that give our bodies energy and stimulate our brains.  Potato chips and sugary snacks have more calories and fats which cause our bodies to feel heavy and sluggish.  

DO NOT SEND SNACKS CONTAINING PEANUTS OR TREE NUTS FOR YOUR CHILD TO EAT IN THE CLASSROOM.  

STUDENTS ARE ALLOWED TO BRING PEANUT PRODUCTS TO THE CAFETERIA FOR LUNCH.    

Enjoy your summer break!!  
I am not in the building during the summer.  Please contact me via email if you have any questions.
 
Sincerely,
Patty Lubash, RN
