My child needs to take daily medication. What do I do?

When a child needs to take daily medication, our office staff will work with the family physician and the parents to administer the medication. The medication must:

  • be in the original container
  • have the pharmacy label on prescribed medication
  • have a signed parent permission slip to administer the medication
  • be stored in the health office

We do not allow students to have any type of medication in their possession.

What do I do if my child is absent?

If your child must be absent, please notify our school office in the morning, and let us know why your child must miss school. If you are unable to call the day of the absence, it is important you send a note in with your child on the day he/she returns to school.

What if my child is tardy?

Elementary school students arriving after school begins must go directly to the school office to pick up a tardy slip before they go to their class. In order to excuse the tardy, parents need to give us a call, or send a note in with their child explaining why the child was tardy.
