A Message from the School Nurse

Student's private medications will be returned this week before final exam days. Please check your child's book bags for these medications. Students with an Epi-pen may carry their personal Epi-pen. The nurse's office, however, also carries back-up Epi-pens and Benadryl for such emergencies.
